Custom multiple choice design in Storyline 3
I have to build a quiz according to a specific design. For the multiple choice questions, I first tried Multiple Choice (Graded Question) because that seems obvious, but I ran into some limitations realizing the visual design.
I then tried to recreate the multiple choice questions using Pick One (Free Form), which allowed me to recreate the design pixel perfectly, by putting elements in a set of states, rather than on the main timeline.
However, the way it is currently set up, I need to define the answer texts in the Slide View, rather than in the Form View, making it harder to manage. What’s worse, is that I need to copy said text to the different states (two of which are visually identical, being Hover and Active).
Text changes are bound to happen in this project, in which case I cannot just go to a Question Bank, apply the changes there, and be done with it. Instead, I have to find the relevant question in the Slide View, and adjust all its three states accordingly. This feels inefficient, error-prone, and frankly a bit silly.
I hope there is a smarter way to go about this, without making concessions to the visual appearance. Could somebody please help me out with this?
I included a screenshot of the visual design, as well as a demo Story which contains the implementation I described. If you’re having trouble selecting the text in a state, that’s because there’s a partially transparent image on top of it.
Thanks in advance.
