Tabbing order issue for paragraphs in SL3/360

Hi everyone,

Has anyone encountered an issue with tabbing order when you have a paragraph that is set to animate by paragraph?

If I have three paragraphs animate at separate times, they animate in fine. When I tab, I hit the full text box (and screen reader reads it) then when I tab it goes through each paragraph but in reverse order.

I'll post a sample when Windows (finally) finishes it's updates.

Hi Steve!

We do have an issue with text animation that is set to 'By Paragraph' related to tabbing not working as intended and going back through.

When you said it was working correctly, was that when the individual text boxes were set to animate as one object? That is the workaround we currently have listed. 

I will add this thread to our report as we are tracking user impact.

Hi Leslie,

I was looking to see if the team had any updates on this issue.? We're using the work around, but I find some designers forgetting and setting larger text boxes to fade in by paragraph. It's also an issue with larger courses that we are retrofitting for maintenance updates, etc. to bring into compliance.

Hi Everyone,

I am happy to share that we just released the newest version of Storyline 360 Build 3.37.21453.0. This release fixed the issue where text animations with the effect options set to “By Paragraph” would cause a text box to be tabbed through multiple times. 

The next step is to update Storyline 360 by heading to your Articulate 360 desktop app and clicking "Update" next to Storyline 360. 

As always, we are happy to answer any questions you have by posting in this discussion, or you can contact our Support Engineers directly.
