Hi Folks,


Another question from a newbie. Would love to hear from anyone with an idea.


Participants are required to give as many responses over a period of time (3mins). Each response is typed into a separate text box. I want to ensure that there are always enough textboxes for each item (so that participants with many responses don't run out of textboxes). The current setup filles the screen with textboxes (each one the width of the screen, some answers may be longer than others).


Is there some way i can make a screen scrollable? (thereby adding many more textboxes).


Or is there some way for a participant who has filled all textboxes to press a button to go to an additional page of textboxes, but continue the /timeout instruction (ie, not give them any additional time)? 


Or some other solution?



Many thanks in advance!


paul

Is there some way i can make a screen scrollable? (thereby adding many more textboxes).


No.


Or is there some way for a participant who has filled all textboxes to press a button to go to an additional page of textboxes, but continue the /timeout instruction (ie, not give them any additional time)? 


Move the /timeout to the <block> level, run further pages in the block.


GO
