What is the Question Quick Menu?

The Question Quick Menu allows you to edit certain question formats and settings.

Menu Contents

The complete list of Question Quick Menu options can be found below:

  • Redo: Once ‘Undo’ is clicked, the option transforms into the ‘Redo’ button. This will restore your previous action or measure.
