Many students are complaining that the instructions tab does not open. When I asked them to open it manually, they mentioned that they didn’t even see the option to open the instructions tab when they click +, neither they see it under tools.
The Markdown option has stopped working as well. Keeps showing the loading animation when I click on Markdown. The instructions tab is open.
They don’t see that option. This is Teams for Education I am talking about. They don’t even see that publish option. I don’t think they are supposed to see that, by design. If they fork, then it goes to their own replit and outside of the teams and then I as a teacher cannot access their forked repl.
I believe that topic is different - that other topic is when the teacher is editing a markdown file. This topic here is about the Instructions tab for the students when they start or open a task. I believe it might be the same as this one:
Browser: Same issue with Chrome, Firefox abd Edge OS: Device (Android, iOS, NA leave blank): Same issue with Window Computer and MacBook Desktop app version (Avatar menu->“Version”) or NA: Plan (Free, Hacker, Pro Plan): Free education
The topic @ShaneAtReplit linked was the same as the second bullet point of this topic, at least.
The issue there at least is that the Markdown tool is still listed even though it was replaced by the feature of previewing individual files using the eye icon next to their filenames.
(To preview a file while editing it, open your file in a tab in another pane and hit the eye icon in that tab)
Ok, I found a solution to this problem by choosing the preview option of the markdown tab above the editing window. This makes appear the lessonplan in the main window where the students can now choose between the lessonplan and the coding. Not perfect, but works for me.
Thank you, the preview button works. But, yes, the main issue is students cannot see the instructions tab, nor does it open automatically, and the option to manually open it has also disappeared. What bothers me is this is not all the students, only some. I have to now go to all the projects and make instructions files as part of the project so that students can meet their deadlines.
