Text Disappearing

I am typing text into a Text block and the text keeps disappearing.  I have to continually retype the text in.  This problem has been happening off and on for quite a while.  I am using the Chrome browser, which improves it, but it's still happening.  This makes creating the text part of the file very frustrating and time consuming.

Hi there Nicole!

Thanks for posting your question here in the forums. Sorry you've encountered this issue! Can you please take a quick video to show us exactly what it is that's happening, so we can help you out.

You can use Articulate's Peek tool to super quickly create a screencast that's automatically uploaded to Articulate 360 and generates a hyperlink. (or use any tool you like, of course!)

You can share the video here in this thread, or if you'd like to share privately, you can send them along to our Support Engineers here.

Here is a video of what I just now captured.  Twice in a very short time, it just erased what I typed and moved the cursor to the place in front of the 2.  It doesn't always move the cursor, but it erases lots of text at one time.  This one was pretty minor.

Hi there, Thaabiet. I'm going to open a case with my team so we can help you further! Please reply back to the confirmation email with:

  • what browser you're using
  • what block type you're creating
  • what kind of text you're typing (plain text, website URL, email address, etc).

We will email you back with some next ideas.

Hi Alyssa,

I am using Google Chrome. I haven’t tried using it in another browser, partly because that would involve getting permission from IT to install another one. The blocks that I have had an issue with so far are: paragraph; paragraph with heading; paragraph with subheading; table; and checkbox list. That’s not to say other blocks are fine – I just haven’t used them yet.

Kind regards,

Dan

This is happening to me repeatedly and I am not using the Chrome browser. I will be typing and my content will just delete and start me in another location of the text. Sometimes if I type out what I need in word and copy-paste I have better luck with it staying put. This is extremely frustrating and time-consuming.

Hi Jessi. I get that this is frustrating - it has been difficult for our team to nail down too because it's so random. Can you let me know which browser you're using? Do you have any browser plugins or extensions? Also, does clearing the browser cache or starting a private (clean) browsing session make any difference?

Thank you!

Hi there! Thanks for the quick reply. I have tried both Chrome and Firefox browsers. Chrome appears to crash and disconnect/restart and say I have no internet connection a lot more. Firefox does not do this but still has the same deletion issue. Both browsers are current and I have tried new browser windows and clearing things, even restarting computer and ensuring the Articulate application is current and I am not having any luck.
