Using Introductions

Warning28 The feature described below is available by subscription. It can be tried out for free in the Play Area.

If you want to use the same stimulus for multiple problems, you can use an introduction (intro) box. When consecutive questions have the same intro, it will be displayed only once before the first question in the series. This means that as long as the questions are all in a row, they can be in any arrangement without changing where the intro shows up.
