Text entry field resize problem

Nov 09, 2020

Hi all,

As you can see in the picture, I have a problem when I want to create text entry field with dashed lines and with white fill color. It instally change it's shape and I can't put this scrool bar to the end of the shape. It just looks awful.

Any thoughts?
Thank you.

Hello Milan and welcome to E-Learning Heroes 😊

Thanks for reaching out and sharing what you are experiencing in your project file.

Would you be able to share this slide so that I can take a look at how you've set this up? If it's a part of a larger project, you can import it into a new file and attach it to your forum reply.

Dear Leslie,

Thank you very much. In the attachment you can download that interaction where I have to remove headline text because of the client. The point is to actually prevent users to have scrolling bar. So they just have an essay box with a limited number of characters. I don't want scrolling bar.

Thank you very much.

I need it ASAP.

Hi Milan,

Thank you for sharing your test file with us! 

After reviewing your file, this does appear to be connected to a similar issue our team is tracking where: 

  • Essay question "Maximum number of characters" option does not limit characters.

I am sorry that you are hitting this snag, but I am including this thread for our team to review further. As soon as we have an update to share, we will be sure to reach back out!
