Scrollbars suddenly appearing in essay question fields

Mar 26, 2018

After I installed the latest Storyline 3 update, tiny little scrollbars are appearing at the very top of all essay question text fields. Is there any way to make them go away? Thanks!

Hey Mary Ann,

Sorry to hear that you've run into some new scrollbars, but I'd be happy to help you out.

It looks like the text box is pretty small, and that could certainly cause the scroll bars to appear.

Have you tried to readjust the size of the text box?

If you need me to take a look, please share the .story file.

The text box is actually large... the size of the whole tablet. The
scrollbars are only appearing in Chrome, not IE. It looks like Storyline
may have automatically created a scrolling panel for the default text since
it takes up more than one line? As soon as I start typing in the field, the
scrollbar goes away.

I just submitted a case to Articulate Support.

Good news, folks! We fixed the issue you reported where a small scrollbar would appear in a empty text entry field.

Install the latest Storyline 360 update to take advantage of all the recent features and fixes.

If the problem happens again, please record a Peek 360 screencast for me, and I’ll be happy to help!
