This widget is a modified version of the Text Area widget that comes stocked with Adobe Captivate 5. It allows you to use a variable as the default text of the Text Area. This widget works similar to the Text Entry Box widget. The Text Area widget will help you to persist text across slides or display text through a variable. You can also use this widget to create custom quiz questions as described by Lieve Weymeis in her blog post and here as well.
You can try the Text Area with Variables:Live Demo
UPDATE: Lieve Weymeis ACE, our Adobe Captivate 5 certified expert, has updated her blog with a new article using this widget. Thanks Lieve!
