Copying text boxes

Jan 23, 2018

Hi all,

Just wondered, if I have a module that has a title, say 'Baking Cakes'.. can I set up a variable that allows me to repeat that text elsewhere in the project? So I could have a sentence that says 'welcome to our quick guide to Baking Cakes', and later on, one that says don't forget to tell everyone about our Baking Cakes lesson etc, wherever I wanted it repeated.

Then, we could use the same template, change the title to Mixing Gin & Tonics', and it would change the whole module without having to check every instance of it. Because clearly, you'd be in no fit state to accurately check a lesson after mixing all those g&t's....   :-)

Hi Paul,

Yup you can do this by having the module title as a text variable and then referencing that variable anywhere you want on slides / in text boxes.

So for example you create a variable called "Module_Title" and one of your text boxes would say "Welcome to our quick guide to %Module_Title%" and it would show whatever you set the variable as.

Hope this is clear!
