Continue text entry if learner moves/clicks off the text entry box

Is it possible to continue entering text in a data entry field (from where you left off) if you move away or click off of the text entry box?

I have a slide where I would like the learner to enter an answer into a text entry field. On the slide there is also a button that gives them help information. If learners begin typing an answer and then decide to click on the button for help, when they return to continue typing their answer, the answer they started disappears and learners must start the answer all over again because the control loses focus.

Has anyone found any way around this? So that you can continue typing into a data entry field where you left off?

Thank you!!

Hi DeAnn,

I don't believe there is a way to set this up within Storyline, although it may be something you'd be able to do with Javascript, although I'm not equipped to support that. I hope that if someone in the community has come up with a solution they're able to share it with you here.
