A question with a large explain section that does not fit in one page

Added by Juani Mela about 1 month ago

Hello:

I have a question with a large explain section that does not fit in one page. AMC restricts to at most one page for a question, which has been fine so far, except this time I wanted to explain carefully and the correction does not fit.

The question has several parts, but they cannot be split into different question because they share some calculated variables.

Is there a way to display the full solution?

Regards

PS: I found a way to split the question, but this problem may show up again.

Maybe moving this long explain section at the end?

Thanks for replying, Alexis, but I cannot make it.

The \explain{} must be inside a question, and each question is limited to one page.

Maybe if there is flag that is only triggered when building the solution... something like:

...

\insertgroup3{T1}

\insertgroup1{T2}

\explain_outside_question{
This advice will only appear in DOC-corrige.
}

\AMCassociation{\id}

...

Thanks a lot Gérard, I think your trick and a little bit of common sense can help avoid this issue completely in practice.
Have a nice day
