Q&A template won't work and shows error (FIXED)

Guys, when I used @Dara.Amarie 's Q&A template, the portal showed error! It said ‘Error: Unexpected Character: Narr’. I changed it to Narrator but it didn’t work. I removed her template and made my own but still it showed me error. Do any of you guys know what to do? Or have you experienced it? I don’t have a screenshot because I didn’t had my mobile near me plus my PC doesn’t take screenshots :woozy_face:

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Instead of a screenshot, can you copy and paste it into a reply below? Maybe I can help

Sure I will provide it to you later as I am not home. Once I am home, I will send it you. Thank you so much for the reply :blush:

you have to change Narr to NARRATOR or NARR,
character names and narrator have to be capitalized.

I deleted the Q&A because it won’t let me go further. I will try that again and if it shows error then I will show you the screenshots. Right now I don’t have my PC with me :frowning_face:

what do you mean nothings showing up? and are you getting any errors?

When I preview my script I can’t see the Q&A template. And it doesn’t show any error!!

I made few changes in the template. Like I changed the space between each line also made changes with apostrophe mark (")

So this is my new script with basic changes.

I don’t know if it’s just me but you only have the option to go to QandA. So I would say have a label continue at the bottom of everything. And if the reader picks the choice to say “Yes, I’m done.” They would tap continue which would take them to the next scene. You can change the goto continue

I did that after looking through the template carefully but it still doesn’t work. You can see the changes in my recent post.
