Retain Text in Text Entry Box

Hi there,

I'm working on a responsive project with Text Entry Boxes and User Input.

My problem is, that whenever the user goes to the next slide and returns to the previous slide (the slide with the TEB), the value of the variable of the TEB is empty. This is problematic because I want to use the input of the TEB later on. I tried using the "retain text" button for the TEB-settings but it makes no difference.

Do you have any ideas?

Kind regards
Nina

Some misunderstanding. The variable value will not be emptied unless you do so your self. Insert the variable in a text cotainer (shape or caption) and you'll see that it is populated whenever you enter anything in the TEB. More info in:
