    Hi,
    I am currently using the standard styles.css, but I also tried the bigstyles.css but with the same result.

    Isn't there a quick fix to change the height of the answer field?
    Thank you.

    If you have tried alternative CSS you should run /admin/purgecaches.php to make sure you are not seeing old code

    I did that and now the text is very big, but anyway it's better than before, except for the letters 'g' 'q'....

    Hello.

    I'm creating a gap fill table with some questions accepting more than one answer and hence using the 'or' | operator. However, this creates huge gaps which ruin the proportions of the table. Is there anyway of getting round this? The gaps are fine if I only allow one answer, but way to big if I specify more than one.

    Grateful for any help.

    Version 1.5 of the Gapfill question type has a checkbox for "Fixedgapsize", this would make all gaps the size of the largets. That is the only control it gives over gapsize. I have not added a description to the documentation yet. I will work on getting that done.

    Hi Marcus
    Thanks for letting me know. I was already using fixed gap size.

    I don't suppose in future versions there would be a way to limit the gap when using the 'or' operator. If you have two or more possible phrases to go into an exercise the gaps are just way too big.

    Could you go to this link
    https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-qtype_gapfill/issues

    And create an issue describing what you want and how you would like it to work. Then when I go to consider it I will have some more ideas. I have though about it in the past but I have tried to keep the syntax and interface as simple as possible for the new user

    Hello,
    I wonder if it's possible to see the correct answers after submitting.

    If you mean you want to see the correct answer if a student has entered an incorrect answer, I am working on this. A beta version is available at https://github.com/marcusgreen/moodle-qtype_gapfill/tree/gapfill_1.6. If you are not able to test the beta version let me know and I will show you some screen shots of how it is currently working. Thank you for your feedback.

    Hello,
    I am using the beta version you mentioned, but someone noticed that grading is not working, even if we get some responses correct the grade is always 0.00 out of 10.00 (0%).
    Any idea what's causing this issue?
    Thank you

    Thank you for the feedback Victor, I will investigate, could you post this same question in the quiz forum and then other people might also give feedback

    Hi Marcus - I was just trying out the gap fill question in my Moodle 2.9 beta site and it seems like the drag and drop part might be broken. With a question set for gap fill or drop down, no problem. With it set for drag and drop, as soon as you click on a word to drag it to an answer area, it jumps down below the question text and can no longer be moved. Has anyone else reported something similar?

    Hello,
    I've also been experiencing this issue since the latest release (2006082514 1.6).

    Hi Al, nobody else has reported it but I have just replicated your experience in an install of 2.9 on my own machine. It has worked in earlier versions of 2.9 as I have been updating with every new version so something has changed. I shall see what I can do about it. I have just tested Gapfill 1.6 with 2.8 and it seems to work fine.
