Text Entry box and the enter key (add carriage return)

Jul 30, 2015

Hi all:

I need to be able to use the ENTER key within the text entry box in a quiz (i.e. add carriage return). This is important so that users can enter multiple lines in the text area. Right now the ENTER key submits the page.

Hi Haidee!

Here's how Articulate Storyline handles the Enter key in data-entry fields:
*  If the data-entry field is tall enough to accommodate more than one line of text, the Enter key will add a line break (return), so the learner can start a new paragraph.
*  If the data-entry field is only tall enough for a single line of text, the Enter key will assign the learner's response to the text field's variable. In other words, it'll submit the learner's response.
