Issues with graded Fill in the Blank question

I'm using the latest version of Storyline (part of 360 apps).

I am having some weird issues with the graded Fill in the Blank question.

1) when I click in the "type your text here" the text box freezes up and no text can be entered.

2) multiple tries to answer, the text answer box also freezes after hitting the Try Again button!

Has anyone else experienced this glitch? If so, is there a fix or a workaround?

Okay, I think I just answered my own question, which begs another question! :) When I insert the graded fill in the blank slide as is with no modifications to it, it works fine. I was attempting to resize and relocate the text answer box, which appears to cause the problems I mentioned. Has anyone modified this type of question slide with no issues? Thanks!

Hi Crystal,

I have been doing some testing on my own to try and determine what caused this bug.

I was using preview mode. I think I have narrowed down the cause. The freeze I mentioned occurred after I manually adjusted the size of the text input box. The workaround was to double click on the text box and then change the dimensions in the Width and Height boxes. Once I adjusted the size of the text box that way, I then moved it to where I wanted it on the slide and everything is working as it should. Hope that makes sense! :)

Hi Alyssa,

it doesn't look like you were able to recreate my issue. No worries, I have it working now for me. I guess I am very good at creating bugs, LOL! Yes, all of my previews have been on my local drive.

What I can tell you is that when I was dealing with the bug, the flashing text cursor automatically appeared in the resized text box on preview. I could type in text initially, but not again for other tries. If I attempted to click inside the text entry box it also froze. It was bizarre for sure.
