Fill In The Blank (FIB) Question Captivate v5.5
Does anyone know how to expand the length of the FIB answer panel once the user has seleted their answer from the drop down list ?
Above allows the Learner to see the full text of the options, but when they click on their option they see the following:
I need the panel to be longer in order to display the full text of the selected answer...A Win-Win-Win Situation, not A Win-Wi
The drop-down list is set to be the length of the very first item in the list.
Just make sure the first item in the list of options is the longest one and you'll find that the field is long enough for all the others.
Thanks...it would be nice to be able to resize the length of the drop-down list (as with v4) yourself rather than have drop-down fit the first word.
In my case the correct answer happens to be the longest answer which I do not really want as the first option. I dont want the answers shuffled and so under v5.5 conditions I have to show it as the first option in order for the drop down list to display correctly.
If it makes you feel any better Noel, I've logged this as a usability bug with Adobe so that hopefully it will get considered for fixing in a future version of the app. I agree that it could be better.
It seems to me that the size of the dropdown box is set according to the length of the shortest answer and not the first (as stated above) or the longest (as it should be). To me, this is getting into bug territory, not usability.
I will be out of the office starting 05/04/2012 and will not return until
I will be checking my emails when possible, but please expect a delay in
