Question slides following a text master, question text going into the title text

Hi, I'm new to Storyline 3 and have never used much out-of-the-box quizzing functionality even in earlier versions, so apologies if I'm missing something obvious here.

I'm working on creating a new template for my team, actually, and want to get some sample quiz questions built out while at the same time establishing our master slides and styles. 

The issue I'm running into now is when I add a graded question, it automatically applies my default text slide master, and the text of the question I enter ends up in the title text box rather than in its own box:

 

Do I need to create a new master for quiz slides? If so, how do I tell it which text box is where I want the text of the question in and which is for the title of the slide? (I would like quiz slides to continue to have titles and headers like the others.)

Hi Anneke,

Thanks for sharing your slides with us! I took a look and saw that you'd fully customized your slide masters and removed the built-in ones which include a Question option. Not to worry - you can easily adjust your own masters to work for quizzes or import this file into a new file to regain those built-in slide masters. I recorded a quick Peek 360 video to show you the difference. 

Keep in mind that the slide title will always refer to the question text. That tip should help you redesign slide masters that fit with your needs.

Hello, I'm having a similar issue. I'm using Articulate Storyline 2 and have modified the default master slides, adding an additional Text Box placeholder to all masters (including Question / Question with Media) that serves as sort of a "breadcrumb" — it's in the top of the layout, with small white text on a dark rectangle labeling where we are in the course. The problem is when I create a quiz, it's populating this Text Box with the questions, instead of the main Text Box (which is mostly unchanged from the initial state). Is there a way to specify which Text Box the quiz questions will populate?
