Free-form question error

Nov 15, 2021

I have built (and re-built) a free form drag and drop quiz slide, but when submit button is clicked, this error continues to pop up: "Invalid answer: You must complete the question before submitting".

All the of the drop items are correctly associated with their Targets. I've checked and rechecked all the Question Tool options. Not sure what else to try. 

I've uploaded the slides here for your review. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi, Michael.

Thank you for sharing your .story file!

The state changes for drop correct/incorrect and also the built-in hover state are all done automatically for you, so you don't have to add those triggers manually:

I disabled those triggers in the attached edited file. Let me know if this works!

Thank you Maria!  That fixed it, but I'm not sure why. Is it because I already set up the correct drop targets using the Form View? 

I'm surprised the Hover state changed even though you disabled the trigger. Doesn't make sense, but I'm not very experienced in Storyline.  

So, for each Statement, your version has 2 pairs of triggers, (Jayla's expression), except for the first Stmt.  Was there a reason that one has 3 triggers?  Again, how did those Statements change state to red or green or bold without those triggers?  

Thanks for your help!
