## What takes the place of \AMC@boxedchar

Added by David Dixon 10 months ago

For a very long time I've used AMC to generate randomized-answer quiz slides similar to beamer. The answer letters (A,B,C,D,E) are in solid-colored boxes. This was done using the code below (which I picked up online a long time ago)

\makeatletter \renewcommand\AMC@boxedchar[4]{\AMC@LR{\hspace{0pt}% {\ifx\@empty#2\@empty \def\AMC@boxcolor{black}\fi% \ifAMC@correc\def\AMC@boxcolor{black}\fi% \lower\AMC@boxeddown\hbox{\csname AMC@shape@\AMC@shapename\endcsname% {\AMC@boxcolor}% {\ifx\@empty#4\@empty red\else\AMC@boxcolor\fi}{#2}{#3}{\AMCchoiceLabelFormat{#1}}}}}% } \makeatother

AMC 2.3.0 now complains that \AMC@boxedchar is undefined. Any suggestions on how to modify this to work now gratefully accepted.

AMC internals changed. Try to find `white`

in the LaTeX style file to see where you should redefine something. With the current development version (1.4.0~beta1), this leads to something like

\makeatletter \renewcommand\AMC@setcolors@[2]{% \def\AMC@boxcolor@{\AMC@boxcolor}% \ifx\@empty#1\@empty \def\AMC@boxcolor@{black}\fi% \ifAMC@correc\def\AMC@boxcolor@{black}\fi% \def\AMC@fillcolor@{\ifx #2\AMC@checkedbox% \AMC@boxcolor@\else red\fi}% \AMC@draw@crossfalse% \ifKV@AMCdim@cross\ifx #2\AMC@checkedbox% \AMC@draw@crosstrue\fi\fi% } \makeatother

Perfect - that solves the problem - thanks!

I have a snippet that formats beamer-like slides of AMC questions. I use it for quizzes so that the questions and answers are in a different order from section to section of the same term, and from term to term. I can make it available if you think anyone would be interested.

Thanks again!
