Text overlapping in notes section of quiz slide

Oct 23, 2013

I have a multiple choice quiz slide. I'm using the notes tab as a transcript for the narration. When I preview the slide, the text for the quiz question is automatically inserted on top of the notes I entered (transcript). Is there a way to prevent the quiz question from showing up automatically in the notes tab?

Hi David,

This is a known issue when using Questions from a question bank. Our QA team is aware of it, although I cannot offer a time frame for when or if this issue will be addressed. If your questions are not part of a question bank, are you able to share the .story file with us here or by sending it privately here?

My work-around for this problem was to remove the question text from the default question field and place it in a new text field that I placed in the slide on top of the default (and now blank) question field. This removes the question from the notes section. I was then able to paste the question into the notes tab in the desired location.

Not a big deal, but it would be nice to have the option to uncheck a box and prevent the question from being posted automatically in the notes. I suppose this may have something to do with Section 508 compliance, but if there are additional instructions for the slide (i.e., how to complete the question), it's nice to be able to control the order and display of these in the notes.
