In Question editor for Matching Drag-n-Drop question type, the drop-down list for Shuffle is disabled.

Oct 14, 2015

I created a Matching Drag-n-Drop question, typing the questions with their appropriate answers each on their own line. I assume that that specifies what the correct match is for each. Then in the Question Editor, the tutorial tells me to select "Answers" in the Shuffle drop-down. However, the Shuffle drop-down is disabled--grayed out.

What do I do?

Yeah, sorry, my free trial ran out at midnight. (Maybe when it does, the desktop icon should turn into a pumpkin. ;->) However, I'm putting the work sample I created on my web site,, if you want to take a look at the result. In it, I created and used a second scene for a set of learn-more slides, used layers with triggers a few times, both user-event and timed, and of course created the quiz, Thanks for your responsiveness, folks! All in all, Storyline has excellent usability in much of its UI, particularly in the paradigm for creating layers and triggers (as well as excellent functionality there). I hope to be an enthusiastic user soon!

Welcome, Lush Training. Happy to help! 🌟

Answer choices are automatically shuffled in the built-in graded Matching Drag-and-Drop question which will grey out the Shuffle: field. 

How do the answer choices display during Preview or in the published output? If they are not shuffled, would you mind sharing your .story file with us so we can take a closer look at what's happening?

You can share it publicly here, or send it to us privately by using this upload link. We'll give it a test and delete it once we solve this puzzle!
