Documentation Tool - upgrades we are planning


Hi, we are wanting to implement some upgrades to the H5P Documentation tool. (We've done a few things before, but I'm not the developer.)

Just for FYI (and any insight if you've tackled any of these issues before) for the Documentation Tool. It's a great H5P tool, but specifically we want a few changes. 

1.     MAJOR BUG: Goals don't appear when outputting to printed format

ISSUE: With Goals content type, neither the form's text, and user-entries are not saved and do not appear on the printed version of the exported document

SOLUTION DESIRED: Form text and user-entered data need to appear on the printed version of the export document

2.     FEATURE REQUEST: String together text on standard page

DEFAULT REQUESTED: no line break

ADDITIONAL FEATURE REQUESTED: Admin can select when to add a line break by selecting "Insert a line break after element" add-on in the Admin page

RESULT: Printed output of export document will contain contiguous text where default text appears, and Admin can control where the line breaks appear on the printed form 

3.     FEATURE REQUEST: Add new page type for multiple choice


·       Radio buttons: ON or OFF

·       Multiple select: Simultaneous ON or OFF


When the payment area of the form appears, the following items should have multiple choice buttons or checkboxes next to them:

·       Cash

·       Bank draft

·       Certified cheque

·       Other

 4.     BUG: Text entered by Admin does not appear on final page; nor on printed text output

 ISSUE: Admin enters text in element type "Text" that should appear on the printed text ouput.

Hi, thanks for the very thorough report. 

For the feature requests, I recommend that you contact Joubel (the company behind H5P) for a quote if you would like the features to be developed professionally: [email protected]

Regarding the first point, I couldn't replicate the bug on Could you try it here as well?

The last point isn't a bug, only the title should appear on the exported document. If you would like the text to be added there as well you could always request it.

We are also experiencing the bug where the Goals page and any content added by the user does not display on the "create document" page, nor does it show in the exported version.

The "goals assessment" does show if that was included as a page type, but never the original "Goals" listing. I replicated this bug here on h5P with the example Documentation Tool, using the Chrome brower on a desktop.

Hi kdutchin,

I am unable to replicate the issu that you described above. Can you please provide a sample content?


Sure I'm happy to. This was created on using the documentation tool and a 3 pages (standard, goals, document export). In the screen shots I show text input to the standard page, text input to the goals page and then the document export. Note that the document export shows the standard page text, but not the goals page text. 

Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help troubleshoot.

Hi kdutchin,

Thnk you for the additional information. I did notice that this issue only happens if there are no "Goals assessment page". I have created a bug report and you can follow the progress here.
