We have an Assignment with lots of groups and a teacher for each marking them. They have successfully marked around 250 submissions and then a problem was noticed.
On attempting to edit the feedback text, the contents of the feedback edit box are *wrong* (some completely different feedback). The contents are different from that show everywhere else (which is correct) and, in particular, editing from the Gradebook is correct.
At the bottom of the edit box it says "A draft version of this text was automatically restored". Just to be clear...
- this applies to all teacher in this course (and to Managers and admins)
- it applies to any browser/PC
- it *only* applies to this Assignment instance and the Feedback edit box
- as far as we can tell, the 'wrong' text is always the same.
Switching to TinyMCE or each user resolves the problem.
Any thoughts? I am at a loss.
How does this feature work? Are there any docs? I'm happy to try to debug it but I don't know where to start.
I doubt it is actually changing the stored values. The problem may come after the edit window is opened. The old feedback is loaded, and then the last unsaved draft file will be loaded over it. The correct text can be restored by clicking undo or ctl-Z.
However, Mary is probably correct, and then you may be able to update your code to fix it.
