|12/08/2014 - 16:45||Action buttons for Insert Stuff off screen on smaller screened devices||
When editing questions in a quiz or survey, the the insert stuff dialog box can open in such a manner that the action buttons at the bottom are below the bottom of the screen on devices with 800px or less vertical resolution. Because the question editing interface is frames based, scrolling is not available on the page so users cannot scroll down to see the action menu.
Inrease screen resolution, or you may click-and-drag the dialog up the page to reveal the action menu at the bottom.
