Shape filled with picture does not import picture into another quiz

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

If you fill a shape with a picture (right-click and select Format Shape), the picture will not get imported with the shape when you import the question into another quiz.

This is a known issue.  Currently, the only workaround is to manually fill the shape with the appropriate image file after importing the question into a new quiz.

For reference, you can fill a shape in Quizmaker with a picture in the following manner:

  1. Open the question for editing, and switch to Slide View.
  2. Right-click the shape, and select Format Shape.
  3. On the Fill tab, select the radio button for "Picture or texture fill".
  4. Click the File button.
  5. Browse to and select the appropriate image file, and click the Open button.
  6. Click the Close button to save your changes.
