I would like to know if it is possible to place a button that when pressed automatically write a symbol in the text box for a short answer. For example, the symbols of Spanish. I do not see an option that allows you to write a symbol automatically. I know that keyboards can be changed to write in another language, but many institutions do not allow the student to configure the computer.javascript:;

I don't think you can do this with an advanced action but what you need is someone with better knowledge of JavaScript to write a couple of lines of code that will concatenate your existing variable where the TEB is storing to with the "ń" character each time someone presses that button.

Thanks Wilson. Yes, I suppose something like what you say is necessary. I just wanted to know what that code would be and how and where to insert it. I think that not being able to insert special symbols in an answer is one of the limitations of the Captivate program.

I will continue waiting for possible solutions. I appreciate your response.

On the whole most Adobe applications, not only Captivate, suppose that everyone is using an American keyboard which has a very limited set of character, compared with the keyboards used in other languages (Spanish, French, Dutch, German Russian....)

In Captivate most of the learning interactions do not accept combination characters which I cannot even type in this forum although they are on my keyboard. The good news is that you can use combi characters in TEB's and even in the correct answers.

You are asking for more, I tried the insertion of such a character in the variable associated with the TEB, using the Unicode with the JS String.fromCharCode(); but without success. The concatenation with the present value of the TEB should happen also in JS.  Too little time to explore further, crossing my fingers that someone can offer the script.
