The Question Stem and Answer Options can be formatted using the formatting toolbar just above the text, which is the TinyMCE editor. The TinyMCE editor controls will not auto-load by default when a user opens the Write Question page.
The TinyMCE editor toolbar present near the top of all the dialogue boxes on the Write Question page is hidden by default when the page is opened. It only becomes available once a user clicks inside one of the dialogue boxes, and only for that particular dialogue box. The user can then input rich text content into the dialogue box. Once the user clicks on another such dialogue box on the page, the TinyMCE editor controls appear in that dialogue box and get hidden in the previous dialogue box.
