ANOTHER STUPID QUESTION

Does one have to author a quiz in one sitting? I had to leave the 'puter for a bit and lost one. Or, could it be in sploofolimbo?

Thanks for the help in advance. Claudette

Once you add something in a quiz & click the 'update' button, even if you get distracted with something else & get logged out, the quiz info should still be there. Just check @ the bottom of the 'your quizzes' pg where it shows the quiz stats. The name s/d be there (listed in the build mode).

There's no minimum time to creating a quiz, that I have encountered. Did you check to see if it was there?

i write my questions and the answers on wordpad first. i also copy parts of my research so it's easy to access along with the references.

i save it to a file so i can work on it as often as needed.

this way i can tweak it, correct spelling errors etc.. i also have a copy should (heaven forbid) it get lost in cyberspace enroute to the editors.

hope this helps.

I was using Word as an editor and than would cut/paste into the quiz form. One of the editors told me that it created all kinds of weird results making it difficult to edit.

I only had that happen once when I was using an unusual font. So now I stick with fonts that have characters like quotes, apostrophes, dashes, ...
Times New Roman, Arial, & Courier New have been some good ones for me so far.

i think we are talking about 2 different word processing programs here..

'MSWord' uses smart quotes that do wreak havoc in some cases by adding extraneous characters when read by another system.

'wordpad' has never caused that problem for me. it's the one i use that was included with my windows OS.. (i go to Start--> accessories--> wordpad)
