Mark the word problem


I dont know why but there seems to be a problem with the mark the word activity.

Sometimes when you put the word between the two *word*, it doesnt recognize it.

It seems to do it randomly though, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt.

Is this a bug?

Are you putting several words between two asterisks? If so, that is why you are experiencing problems, since that is not supported. This content type only supports single selectable words.

Would alternative spaces like Alt+0160 (i think) be easily supported?


They behave like characters in lots of systems and could link words together.

I don't know what Alt+0160 will input, but I don't think that will help. There are several forum posts related to this here on, have you seen those? Here's  a search result for you:
