Add Custom Fonts to Editor Menus #

Private Label and Enterprise subscribers have the additional option of including custom fonts in their assessment menus.

Select one of these fonts to be used as the default font if no other font is selected.

The fonts included in your list will be available in your assessment via the “Font” drop-down menu for all content editors.

Assessment Font drop-down menu

Your default font will be used when you enter text in any editor. Use the “Font” menu to modify the font for specific text entries.

NOTE: When you copy content into your assessment from another program, such as MS Word, that content sometimes contains styling information that will override your default font selection. We recommend using the “paste as plain text” tool in the content editor windows to ensure that your fonts and other styling are properly applied.

Paste as Plain Text

Set Default Assessment Font Size #

Finally, you can set the default font size for your assessment.

Set default assessment font size

NOTE: These settings control your assessment’s default fonts and font sizes. You can still override the default font and font size in any text area in the assessment editor. Wherever a font or font size is not specified in an editor window, the general settings apply.

Save Font Selections #

Click “Save” to save your selections.

Show Assessment Title #

Next is an option to show the assessment title on the questions page of your assessment.

Show assessment title

If your assessment is “Split by Sections” (which is set on the “Setup” tab), then an option to show your Section heading is offered instead of the assessment title.

In the popup window, you’ll see two radio buttons labeled “Select stock background” and “Upload custom background,” followed by a series of images.

The images on this page are the pre-defined background images available for each of your assessments. To use one, select it, then click “Save.”

Set Desktop & Laptop Background Image #

The first image you upload will be used for desktop and laptop displays (wider than 800px).

It should use a wide aspect ratio (wider than tall). A size of 1280 pixels x 720 pixels works well. 

Ensure your image file isn’t too large, as an excessive file size will cause your background image to load more slowly.

Select custom assessment background image

After you click “Confirm,” you’ll see a thumbnail image of your background.

Set Mobile Background Image #

Assessment Generator automatically creates a mobile version of your background image by cropping the uploaded image to a size that better fits mobile devices.

Autogenerated mobile assessment background image

To keep the auto-generated mobile background, click “Save.” 

Upload Custom Mobile Background Image #

Or, if you prefer, you can select “Upload mobile background image” and upload a different image. Your mobile background image should be vertically oriented — 450 x 800px works well.

Upload mobile assessment background image

Ensure your mobile background image file isn’t too large, as it may load slowly over cellular data connections.
