Using Templates and Editing Text in Boxes

Nov 09, 2015

I'm using the drag and drop template and when I choose edit text on the drop boxes  (e.g. Note 1) the original text remains in the background with my text on top. I tried the preview view and you can still see the two texts. How can I delete the original text and only have my text visible. I've experienced this in other slides/templates as well.

One more question. I'd like to have students "take notes" during the presentation and am currently using a quiz - blank text box. Is there a way to set a trigger or something that would allow them to print or save a file when they are done? The only print options I found were for quiz results. Help would be much appreciated.
