Can't insert images or media in the choice text of MCQ questions

      Description

      The HTML editor is now available to edit the text of multiple choice quesitons in the Lesson module. However, when I try to insert an image or add a link to e.g. an audio file, the popup Insert (link or media or image) window is missing the necessary button or link to an uploaded file or the file picker.

      Some users do need to insert such media into the choice text of their questions (as it was possible to do in 1.9).

            yes, this is a know problem, unfortunately we need to fix issues with file editor first (target 2.0) and then refactor the code in lesson (target probably sometime in 2.0.x)

            reassigning to author of the current code

            Not sure I understand this. This issue suggests that the 'answer' fields of an MCQ question in Moodle 2.0 are edited using an HTML editor, but as far as I can see it is just a simple text field. Is this because it has been regressed as a result of this issue?

            The requirement for HTML editors to edit MCQ answers is listed as an unresolved issue: MDL-5309

            Steve,
            You have to switch to HTML format in the provided dropdown list, save your question and re-open to edit it, and then the HTML editor is available.

            What you want is not related to the bug described here.
            What version of Moodle are you using?
            What type of Lesson question do you want the student to "insert" a picture in their answer? An Essay question?

            Yes, I use essay question.
            I want students upload an image to show GUI program's result, so I can review all the images.

            I have come across this in Moodle 2.2.2 using Chrome & Safari (client didn't test Firefox) on a Mac.
            I believe this is happening in all areas where editing occurs - not just MCQ.
            This is happening to an admin role on the site, however, as an admin myself, I have no problem and am able to see the 'buttons' for both images & embedded media.

            I have raised priority to Major. This really ought to be fixed for the release of 2.3.

            I just noticed that I actually have reported a kind of a duplicate for this in MDL-32870, where I provide part of the solution. I'm actually able to make the HTML editor insert pictures etc. but unable to successfully backup/restore.

            Sorry -> Brokenlink -> The Insert into files is not complete

            Solution:
            Change in moodle/mod/lesson/locallib.php
            line 785
            $this->_form->addElement('editor', 'answer_editor['.$count.']', $label, array('rows'=>'4', 'columns'=>'80'), $this->editoroptions);

            line 803
            $this->_form->addElement('editor', 'response_editor['.$count.']', $label, array('rows'=>'4', 'columns'=>'80'), $this->editoroptions);

            Linking to MDL-32870 as a duplicate even if this issue is older and has more votes because I have a good hope that MDL-32870 makes it's way into Moodle shortly (fingers crossed !).
