Is there a way that when user use one option from drop down menu, that option vanish (is hidden from list of options)?

Hi Jure,

I'm afraid that's not possible using a built-in option. However, you could certainly build your own drop-down interaction and use one of the freeform tools to convert it.

This usually comes in handy if you have the same option listed twice - it can be a little confusing when learners aren't sure which instance of that answer goes with which match.

Another option is to variate the answer - you can provide a number, or a small amount of additional information with the response.

Best of luck on the project and have a great day!

Hi Jure,

No problem - that's why we're here :)

First, I'd recommend getting familiar with the following features of Storyline:

Working with States, Triggers, and Layers - E-Learning Heroes

The Order in Which Triggers Are Executed in Articulate Storyline

Now, there's also a few examples and discussions out there that may give you an idea of what's possible and may even inspire your own drop-down menu:
