Question:

I may find a bug about clozed function. When I selected some words and tried to clozed it, I find the highlight text was not my selected. And the generated item’s answer is right, but the question is wrong.

I have attach the screenshot with this Email. I wish it can help you know what had happened.

Answer:

This is a known bug in Internet Explorer (documented elsewhere on this site). Currently, there is no software workaround to fix the issue in SuperMemo. The simplest two workarounds for users:

  1. delete a cloze that is misaligned. In all cases tested, second cloze always works correctly
  2. correct the position of the cloze bracket [...]. In all cases tested, the answer is extracted correctly

follow up question

Do you think Internet Explorer has problems with ranges on Unicode characters?

answer

This problem affects Latin/ANSI texts as well.
