How to show text input from one page to the next.

Forgive the many (and novice questions), but just getting familiar with JustInMind. I'm trying to mock up a simple google home page by bringing in a screen shot and overlaying it. I can create the navigation fine, but how do I bring what was inputted within the text section (ie overlaid search bar) to the next page to show what was searched?

Don't worry, ask whatever you want to, that's why we created this place for. To bring a data from one screen to another you can use variables. Take a look at this video tutorial http://www.justinmind.com/tutorials/m...

Can i use text from a textarea field (not just a single line but multiple lines) in a variable? I'm simulating a form where a user would enter multi-line comments and want to display those comments in subsequent screens using a variable. Can't seem to get that to work. Other single line text variables work fine.

The text area should work as well. Could you send an email to jim.support at justinmind.com with your prototype so we can check what's not working in it?

Yeah, you're right. I was not connecting the variable to the textarea field properly, it's working now - thanks for your response.
