Minor QOL thing...

Feb 12, 2015

On simulation/quizzing slides requiring text input, does anyone know if there's a way to start the cursor in the box without the need of the learner to first click in it?

There's a simulation I'm recording where, in the live system, they can input numbers and tab to the next box.  In SL they have to reach back over to the mouse and click in the text box to input, which kinda takes them out of the immersion.

Hi Jason,

Are you using Storyline 2? If so, it's a known issue documented here that the text entry doesn't have the focus and we'll post any additional updates on that article. 

If you're using Storyline 1, you should be able to place the text entry box at the bottom of the timeline and that should cause it to be the first element grabbing focus on the slide.
