Why my Text Entry default text doesn't go away once I click inside of the text boxes?

I have this slide with five text entry boxes. However, when I click inside and start typing, the default text doesn't go away. I have other slides with text entry boxes, and those do go away when I start typing.  I checked everything but can't figure out what I have done differently on these text entry boxes. Can someone take a look at my story file and tell me what's wrong with the set up?

Thanks.

Hi, Maggie.

Thank you for sharing your .story file!

I noticed you have a default value for your variables, which is why the text entry fields force the user to delete the text first before typing their answer:

If you delete those values, it should work as expected.

I am attaching the edited .story file here.

Let me know if this works!
