Inserting reference in text input box

Sep 06, 2022

Hi all, 

I am trying to create a space in my course where learners can write additional notes. At the moment, I have it set up as a layer that shows when clicking on a "notes" icon. 

The first one works great.... but...

I want them to be able to see and add to their notes added previously (e.g they make notes when on slide 2 and then on slide 4 they can add more notes and see the notes that they wrote from slide 2 etc)

I have been trying to add a reference and it worked once in preview and not since even after deleting and resetting it several times. 

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this to work?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi Joe, thanks for replying, I have attached it here. I had to pull a lot out of it for confidentiality  but I think I have left the parts that are necessary - Clicking on the pencil icon in the bottom right opens the "additional notes" layer where the user can type in what ever they need to.

I want those notes to roll over and be accessible and editable from each slide of the course (16 so far) 

Thanks in advance :)

the trick is:  put your notes to the slide master

and here one of your slides

-> no slide layer for the notes on the normal slides!

communication between slide -> slidemaster with variables

showNotes -> hides/show the notes panel
additionalnotesCancel -> backup of the old value, if cancel clicked on the notes panel

add one trigger on every slide

(this is needed, when the notes are open and the another slide is clicked)
