Variable quits working on a fill-in question

Problem: This has been driving me crazy. In this set of questions I have a line that tracks statistics at the bottom of each slide. It works great until I get to the fill-in question. After that point it stops reporting the value of %attempted% correctly for that slide, and all subsequent slides. Moving the slide to a different position creates the same problem in that new position. Can you suggest why the variable %attempted% suddenly stops working on that slide?

My example file

ActivePresenter version: 8.5.8

OS: Windows 11


Hi Roger,

After checking your project, we have found that your issue is due to your setting in slide 4 at the Text Entry part.

In the Properties pane of this slide > Score & Reporting, please follow the below instruction to solve the issue:

  • Submit: Change from Auto to Press Key. This will help validate the entered text after you press the Submit key.
  • Variables: unselect attempted and leave this part blank.

Hope this helps.

With regards,
Quynh Anh
