Text Input Overflowing the Input Area

I have text input boxes in my project and have tried setting the autofit parameters to "shrink text on overflow" and "do not autofit" (and adding a larger textbox), but neither option is keeping the text from running off of the textbox when I preview the slide.

I would appreciate any insight into correcting this problem.

I have attached my story file.

Is this a related issue?  I have a text entry box and a scroll bar appears when you get to the bottom of it, but with every line over, the whole scroll box moves upwards on the screen, outside of the actual text entry box - and just keeps 'walking' further and further up the screen with every extra line.  Using Storyline360

Cheers, Laura

Hi there Laura,

Thanks for allowing me to take a peek into your file. I'm seeing the exact same behavior you're seeing! I also tried importing the slide into a new Storyline 360 file, but that didn't help. 

From here, I'm going to get this into the hands of our Support Engineers. They'll do some further digging to find out why this problem is happening. Keep an eye out for an email from Support@Articulate.com. You'll hear from us soon!

Good news, folks! We fixed the issue you reported where text would overlap when a text entry field was filled.

Install the latest Storyline 360 update to take advantage of all the recent features and fixes.

If the problem happens again, please record a Peek 360 screencast for me, and I’ll be happy to help!
