Variable moves position in text box on top of other text

Hi There,

I'm having an issue in a few of my slides getting the variable to appear in the correct position. I'm using text boxes and writting a sentence and then I want the variable to appear on the next line but instead it appears ontop of the line above, even if I put a few line breaks in

Has anyone else experienced this,

Hi Stephen,

Have you tried inserting the variable's reference directly in the "Create a folder shape" instead of inserting an additional text box? I'm attaching a quick story I put together where I did just that. If you test it, you'll see that the name inserts just fine. If you have further questions and can't sort out what I mean just by looking at the story, please holler!

Thanks Rebecca for going to all that effort,

My text is all in the text field associated with the caption shape. No additional Text box was used.

I have this option quite often in Storyline where if I add a variable mid sentence on a new line it doesn't display correctly.

I'm surprised no one else has had this issue. I searched and searched for it but could not find it in the forums.
