I have a serious problem with lacking the toolbar on any but the first essay question. I teach web design, and my students cannot put any kind of tags in to answer questions without being able to use the preformat (whether selected from the dropdown box or added manually in the code view).
Sometimes, I just can't think of a way for them to answer a question without generating some code on their side!
However, I realize that people were having problems with IE
and multiple editors so the fix was to not have the subsequent editors activated. I guess you can't have it both ways. Sigh.
I guess I will just have some paper and pencil tests. But I wanted to at least point out one situation in which it was actually needful to have multiple editors! We tried a lot of ways to get around it, and nothing worked.
