Font issue in designing Quiz question

Jump to solution

There is no way to choose the font family while designing a new question in Quiz. There are other features such as changing font size and font color. The default font is very difficult to read, and I wish there was an option to chose the font family or type when typing new questions in Quiz. 

 

I would really appreciate if CANVAS allows us an option to choose the font family while designing new question.

 

Thank you.

Hi, Kusum,

I'm not sure if you're referring to the classic quizzing engine or the new one... if it's the classic one, our teams are focusing on the new quizzing engine, which they do recognize as lacking with some features in the Rich Content Editor. If you're interested in seeing what is in development for New Quizzes at any time, check out the Development tab in Ideas.

Thanks!

Hello Erin,

Thank you for replying back.I am using the Canvas free for teachers and I am not sure what version of quiz design I am using, but I believe it might be the classic quiz engine. How do I get free access to new quiz engine?

Thank you.

Hi, Kusum,

Yes, you are using the Classic Quizzes engine. Unfortunately New Quizzes isn't currently available to our Free-for-Teacher accounts. Smiley Sad

I dislike this too. 

I have discovered  that if I write the quiz in MS Word with a font I like (and that is available on the rest of their Rich Content Editors --- I like Georgia) then I can copy paste it into the quiz, and it uses the font I had in MS Word. It's a workaround. Seemed odd to me not to have that choice, but since I can work around it. 

Also I noticed this particularly in the new quiz editor. Didn't have trouble setting the font in the older quiz editor. (classic)
