Layout detection Check layouts Missed checkboxes

Added by Filippo Cintolesi over 8 years ago

Hi,
I am running Auto Multiple Choice 1.2.0 on Kubuntu
and trying to set my very first exam paper.
Actually,
I have already set the paper and already given it to the students for
answering.
Now, with their answered papers back, I am at the stage of "Data capture",
and realize that a few answers are not detected...simply because
at the former level of layout detection those checkboxes
had not been detected (hence there is no possibility of manual
input of the correct answers either, for those boxes are not
existent for the system!).
QUESTION: is there any way I can fix the incomplete layout detection by
AutoMultipleChoice, so that I can manually add the red squares where they
seem to be missing?
Thank you so much to anybody helping on this.

Can you give us the source file, so that we can see why some questions are not handled by AMC?

Of course I can (please find it attached).
Thank you very much for your prompt reply!

The problem comes from the question ID with a non-ascii character (\begin{question}{sensibilità}). Create a new project with the same source file, changing only this ID (for example \begin{question}{sensibilita}), prepare the documents, build the page layouts, ask for data capture with the scans you already get, and all should be ok now (there should not be any problem since the layout did not change, only one internal ID).

I see... So, despite loading the inputenc LaTeX package with
utf8x option (which fixes things as far as the TeX compilation
is concerned), accented characters may still pose a problem with the
rest of the process. Glad to hear that I can easily change it without having
to worry about the papers already answered.
Thank you so much!
