Text input and Month variable

I created a short project with quiz questions, and am having 2 problems.

  1. The first slide has a text input box with the submit button turned on.  Students enter their name which will populate the certiciate of completion at the end with a variable.  This works, however it is possible to click the submit button without entering anything in the text input field.  I have played with actions, at one point I got it to pause but entering in the text field would not enable movement to the next screen.  How do I get the submit button to only continue when the text box is filled in?
  2. The certificate of completion has month day and year on it, with a variable.  The current date variable displays in numbers, and locale current date varies based display based on computer settings.  How do I get the date to have the month spelled out and then day and year?

Thanks!

For your first question, have a look at the workflow suggested in one of my blogs:

Second question: I would use JavaScript to convert the look of the date to your wishes.
