    I used an embedded Short Awnser question, but I can't find how to make the "send" button appear. The box appears in the page, but no way to send the answer. Thanks for any help!

    When embedding the question, expand the 'Attempt options'. What is 'How the question behaves' set to?

    Hi Chris and Tim, any update on the hopes for a Tiny version at all? I know it will be for when you are planning your move and I can see you'd commented a few months back that you'd started this process and were hopeful on a Tiny release.

    Hi @Kerry,
    It's in active development at the moment (since just before Christmas). Of course, TinyMCE works a bit different to Atto, so while pretty similar, it won't be a 1:1 conversion.

    Fab, thanks Chris! Would it be pushing too much to ask if you have an idea when it might be ready? We're looking at upgrading soon, and there are some bugs in Atto that have been identified which is what's brought this up for us.

    @Kerry, The Open University UK has been converting quite a lot of it Atto buttons, and most have gone smoothly. However, it's our teams' first TinyMCE conversion, and the best I can say at the moment is that it's in the local peer review stage. HOPEFULLY it'll pass that and testing soonish, and then we can release it publicly. However, some of our offshore developers will be off for their new year (Tết) soon, so that may impact our timeline.

    Hello dev team! Is it possible to enable bulk embed? So that when students open a page with an embedded questions, they can see a set of questions but randomly arranged every time they open the page?

    @Symon, you can embed a random question from an embeddable category using the asterisk (*) as the question ID to display any question in that category. So that should allow you to embed a random question (1a, 1b; 2a, 2b etc.) from different categories on the same page. Is that what you want to achieve?

    @chris Nelson, no sir. what I'd like to do is to embed all questions in a category but in different order every time a student opens the Moodle page. and if that can be done with one click. Thank you!!

    @Symon, afraid not. Having a 'quizlet' (a sequence of questions) is on our backlog - assuming that is technical possible - but it seems to keep getting moved back due to other projects or big changes in Moodle Core (e.g. question versioning and the move to TinyMCE etc.). We'll get it someday, but I can't say when mixed

    @Chris Nelson. How about embedding all questions from the same category into one page, but in random order? is this possible?

    @Symon, afraid not. Although feel free to contribute any of these ideas to the Github if you're able! Building on the 'add random question' function, probably something like setting "{category-name}/*:*" would make sense to mass-insert all the questions in a category in a random order. Obviously if you have maybe 3-10 questions, it probably wouldn't take too long for the page to load and display, but the more questions, the longer the load time will be (as each question requires the filter to load an instance).

    @Chris Nelson. I would really love to contribute but I have no idea on coding myself. I have no background. I was hoping somebody would help our company too. Thank you Chris!
