Enter to Submit Removes an Attempt on Fill-in-the-blank
Aug 30, 2018
I'm creating a Jeopardy style game and encountering an odd error with the enter to submit function on fill-in-the blank questions. (Storyline project attached)
I'm using graded fill-in-the-blank questions so I can type in common misspellings of the correct answers and allow users 3 attempts per question. I didn't set a submit key, but I know fill-in-the-blanks use enter automatically, which is fine for my purposes. The problem is that hitting enter (instead of clicking the custom submit button I created) seems to remove one of their attempts (i.e. users only get 2 tries to answer, not 3.)
I have a custom button on my try again slide, but it's only trigger is to hide that layer and play an audio clip (in that order). I don't understand why that would affect how many tries they get, especially because if users click the custom submit, they get the correct number of attempts.
I have tried setting enter as the submit key and my custom button as the submit key, but neither of those change anything.
Like I said, I don't mind them hitting enter to submit, but if there is a solution that removes this function, that would be even better.
