Decimal values in quiz not accepted


I am using AS3 and I have created a quiz, which has a question requiring a numeric entry.

I have chosen a range of possible answers to allow for rounding mistakes:

In the answer (preview or published) it will not accept any value with a point. It only allows  integers as in 3 or 67 (is "integer" even the correct word here?)

Have tried to find this issue in the forum but no success. What am I doing wrong?

If that helps, I am in Germany, where decimal numbers are spelled with a comma instead a point but my AS3 is in English and so is the quiz.

Hi Alyssa,

Thank you, will try it when I have more time.

I think the problems started when I deleted the popup-layers because I did not want those. I suppose I deleted some trigger with that, which I did not see (nothing in the window on the right), but I have only just started so I am probably missing something really simple and basic...

I have kind of found a way around it now, but will look at your idea when I have a bit more time.

Thanks again!

Hi Felix,

Keep us posted if you need any other help - I do know of an issue where the commas aren't accepted in a text/data entry when the language of Storyline is set to German/Deutsch. I'll keep you posted on that issue here as well! 

Hi Ashley,

Is there an update on this?

I'm working on a course in German (with commas as decimal separators) and whereas Storyline will let me enter points as separators when I preview the slide, it still won't let me enter commas there.

Although it does show commas in formular view when creating the question. There on the other hand it won't accept points (I'm working with Storyline 360 in German language).

I also tried that with "Sample_for_Felix.story" you posted above: same picture

What should I do? Is there a fix?

Thank you.

Possibly an issue with the set locale on your computer? Haven't run into this (yet). Maybe SL checks the settings on the computer? I know some programs use this for example for the spell check...
