Text input fields shrink when preview/published

Jan 19, 2022

Hi all,

I've created a fill in the blank question and have run into formatting issues when previewing or publishing the slide due to the input fields shrinking in size.  When I create the slide, I format it so the text input fields all fit perfectly with the text, however the input fields shrink when previewed or published.  This is forcing me to position the input fields so they overlap the text that follows.

How can I fix the size of these so I'm not guess how to line everything up?

Welcome to E-Learning Heroes, Jeff! 

Thank you for sharing a screenshot with us. I noticed you have a dashed outline on your text-entry fields, and we have an open issue we're investigating where text-entry fields with a dashed shape outline resize when previewed or published.

If that sounds like what you're experiencing, the workaround is to use the solid dash instead, if possible.

I'll share this discussion in the bug report so we can notify you of any changes on all fronts. Thank you for working through this with us!
