Data Entry Spelling Error Causing Red Line in Slide Layers

Aug 06, 2020

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to get rid of the red squiggly line that appears when a learner misspells a word in a data-entry field. The problem is that the line is appearing on the slide layers I have set up as feedback layers for the data-entry questions. I have tried hiding the data-entry boxes on the base layers in the timeline for the layers, but the lines persist.

Hi Heidi and Alice,

I'm sorry that you ran into a bug we have reported where: a red line for a spelling error appears on a slide layer.

It is currently in the early stages of review based on our How We Tackle Bugs article. To help you plan, it's unlikely to be fixed in the next couple of updates.

For now, we recommend creating a separate slide for the layer if possible, though I understand that in this case, it's a feedback layer. I'll be sure to note the lack of workaround for this scenario and advocate on your behalf!
