Separating 'continuous text' boxes

Hi all,

Hope someone knows whether there is a workaround for this issue.

I'm wanting to add multiple separated 'continuous text' boxes to a course presentation.

What I want is for Long Text A to continue from Slide 1 to Slide 2, then I want to add a separate, NEW Long Text B that would span from Slide 4 to 5.

The problem is H5P seems to think I want the original Long Text A to keep going and just populates the textbox with "no more content".

Is there a way to 'break' or 'end' one continuous text box so a new one can be added?

Not sure if this is a 'bug' or just a limitation of this feature.

Hi M,

There is no way to do this as it is a limitation of the feature. What you can do is just have the next long text below the 1st one. Just make sure that the size of the continuous text on the last slide with the 1st long text only shows what you want to show.


Hi BV - thanks for the reply. 

Is there any chance this will be addressed in a future update?

Hi M,

There are no plans in making changes to continuous text in the near future but you are more than welcome to post a feature request.   In order for your feature request to attract as much interest as possible make sure it follows the below guidelines:


  1. It is clear from every perspective how the feature will work. We recommend describing the feature with one or more user stories, for instance “As an author, I want it to be possible to pick between different effects for the check answer animation so that the learner will see a variety of effects and also I can adapt the effects to my target audience(I’ll be using pink unicorns which works really well for both my target audience which are 4 year old girls and venture capitalists)”

  2. If the feature can be illustrated with images or videos it always helps

  3. Make it clear what content types this is relevant for, and or if this is a new content type

Make sure you post the feature in the Feature Request forum.
