Spelling error lines of learner input coming through on layers

Feb 16, 2020


I have text input boxes on the base layer. If the learner has spelling/grammar mistakes - the squiggly red lines are coming though on the feedback layers. How do I prevent / remove this? See attachment

Hi Carla,

Thanks for reaching out. I'm sorry that you ran into the red line for a spelling error coming through to a slide layer. We have reported it to our team as a bug, and continue to keep an eye on it to evaluate how many customers are impacted.

And Phil's correct, there's no workaround currently but to create a separate slide for your layer if that's possible for the interaction.

We'll be sure to jump in here when we have any progress to share!

Hey guys, 
I have the same problem with the layers which is quite unfortunate since there are few scenarios that just cannot be replaced by adding additional slides instead of layers. 

Is there any other option available for disabling the spellcheck for the learners altogether? At this point, it seems to be the best option to get rid of the red spelling error lines for good.

Hey team,  I also had this bug and rolled back my Storyline to and the problem went away.  It also partially fixed another issue with pushing enter in a text box instead of 'submit' and a scrollbar would show in the base layer, along with those annoying red squiggly lines.  Note the issue only appeared in Chrome and FireFox.  Looks like a Storyline Update broke a few things.  I'm just pleased rolling back fixed the issue!
