[LON-CAPA-users] Textbox solution turns into a long MC question

I think I fixed the textbox to MC problem.  I had the question type set to exam, and I changed it back to problem.

Sorry about that part of the email, a newbie mistake. =]

But I still don't know how to link a section of students to a slot and I don't know how to remove the bookmark, notes, evaluate, and communication links in the top right corner of the student's view.  Is that possible?

Thanks again.

I don't know what happened but I have MC solutions and I created a problem with a text input box.  The text box shows up in the question editor area, but as a MC question in the student view.

Help, a colleague is using the questions as a test tomorrow.

Also, I seem to be able to create a slot, but I don't know how to assign a section to it.

Just in case you need an example of one of the problems that is doing this here it is:
<script type="loncapa/perl">$drink    = &random(4,8,1);

  $sandwich = &random(7,10,1);

  $dessert = &random(2,7,1);
}while($drink==$dessert|| $sandwich==$drink);

$answer = $drink * $sandwich * $dessert;</script><startouttext />A restaurant offers $drink different soft drink flavours, $sandwich different sandwiches and $dessert different dessert selections.  In how many ways can a person select one item from each category (a drink, a sandwich, and a dessert)?
