HELP! Freeform text entry- Want the answer to show on next slide

Sep 27, 2016

Hey all. You've been awesome thus far and hoping you can help with the following. I'd like to have the learner type a response that could be visible on the next slide. For example, they type "Hello" into the text entry and then move to next slide and have "Hello" visible as their response.

Any thoughts/suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hi Sheri. If you're using Storyline, I've got good news for you: the text entry variable will do exactly what you've described.

Here's a tutorial from Nicole Legault that walks through, step-by-step, how to set-up and recall a text entry variable. And here's a video from David Anderson that you can follow along with that walks through the same process. Note: David's using Storyline 1 in the video, but it's the same for Storyline 2.

Hope this helps, but give us a shout here if get stuck!
