Adding a Multiple Choice Question node

Step 1:

Add a Question node by clicking on the last node to access the contextual menu and choose “New Question” to open up the Edit form.

Step 2:

This is the “Edit” form where you can modify the content of this node.

(Q1): Text editor toolbar. It includes Bold, Link, Email, Underline, Strike-through, Italic.

(Q2): Text editor. Type your text here.

(Q3): Emoticons. Add emoticons to your text.
