I'm creating an eLesson and was trying to use the e-mail
reporting, but it is pretty temperamental and I see many posts with
similar and yet unresolved issues. As a work around, I'm intending
to have a "Diploma" that the student enters their name and then
prints. So I'm thinking I need a Text Entry box, with the
instructions Enter Last Name, First Name here as the default text.
Then I need to enter acceptable answers, and I want it to allow any
charater since the names could be anything. Does Captivate 3 have
any wild card symbols that I could enter as the acceptable answer
that would permit anything to be entered and accepted in a Text

Basically all a Text Entry Box does is accept input, right?
It then compares what was typed to what you are expecting. Assuming
a match is made, it is then deemed successful and off you go
following the action assigned to the "On success" area.
Note that you also have an area that allows you to choose an
action if a user doesn't type what was expected. By default, this
area is "turned off" by having the check mark in the "Infinite
attempts" check box. If you DE-select this and allow a single
attempt, you may then take an action based on a failure. And oddly
enough, this is what you want!
So, what you do here is to enter the comparison text as
something that you never in a million years would expect them to
type into the field. Something like XYzA234Q. Then you assign the
Failure action to be what you WANT to happen. This provides an
ability for "Wildcard" text to be entered.
Hopefully this helps you achieve what you were looking for.
