Draw Questions Randomly Box will NOT uncheck

Jan 09, 2015

I have a draw from question bank slide in my project, with 5 slides for questions in it. They need to display in order. So, in the properties, I've turned OFF (unchecked) Draw Questions Randomly and set the "Include In Shuffle" drop down for each question slide to "Always". When I preview the scene, everything works as expected.

However, when I save and close/re-open the file, Draw Questions Randomly is mysteriously checked again. If I run it, the question slides no longer display in order. Is this a bug?

Hi Quentin,

I don't have a timeframe to offer, but it has been confirmed by our QA team and they've shared the following in the documented kb article linked above:

This is a known issue. It'll be fixed in a forthcoming update for Articulate Storyline. In the meantime, you should be able to avoid this behavior in the following manner:

  1. Verify that the box to Draw questions randomly is unchecked for all your question draws.
  2. Save your project file but don't close it yet.
  3. Publish your course.

Currently, closing and reopening the project file randomizes your question draws. If you need to republish your course later, just verify that the randomization box is unchecked before you publish.
