See the screenshot.
I think this is Moodle 1.8.x ?
Some documents suggest this is now possible in 1.9 but only with the Advanced uploading of files Assignment type.
However, I cannot see this facility within that activity.
I checked Roles and Capabilities and nothing seems wrong there.
Also, in the screenshot attached this was an assignment with a single file upload. We're 95% sure on this point.
So, two questions I guess...
1. Why has this function disappeared?
- is it simply because teachers are supposed to upload a file to the files area and then link to it?
2. Has the old 'attached' file now been converted to a hyperlink to the files area? But there appears to be NO WAY to edit this Assignment now and remove the file?
Interested to hear others comments on this...
