Insert equations into questions ... for example multiple choice

May 12, 2018

In the storyline 3 version for 2018, the utility of inserting tables was annexed and that is very good, my question for the designers is: why was not an equation editor for storyline 3 contemplated ?, that would have been fabulous. For example, the Wondershare QuizCreator software brings its integrated equation editor, why not storyline ?.

I hope this comment is useful.

Sorry for my English.

I did some reading and found that what I wanted to do could be accomplished with Java Script. Unfortunately, our company is not going to support Java Script anymore. So I am on a standstill. The really cool and effective tool that I was going to create was left out and a more simpler solution was implemented. I am not sure if there are other alternatives our there.

Hi Kyle,

Thanks for contacting us to share what you are needing for your course.

We do have an open feature request we are tracking for mathematical equations and this conversation is attached.

The only other solution that I know users used previously was to use images for posting the equations. Hopefully others in the community will be able to chime in and share their additional solutions.

Also, as a heads us, your email signature came through when you replied via email. You can remove that if needed by clicking ‘Edit’ beneath your response. Here’s a quick Peek video if you need help.

I found this while searching for a way to add Math into my Storyline course. I would want to type in equations for interactive features as well as in other slides. I know I can import pictures, but that really adds so much time and the "look" just doesn't "feel" right. So, I am adding my voice to those looking for this. I would think that an existing equation editor could be used as an add on, rather than recreating the wheel. Thanks.
