Table from pdf file could not be copied over to the answer text box in the written response question

You could refer to the attached image that we have disabled the "HTML Editor" and "Allow learners to insert images and add attachments".

The reason to disable both above is to prevent learners from accessing their computers to open up files or even the internet during their assessment.

Is there any workaround to be able to copy over the table with text from the pdf file even if the above two were disabled? Lockdown browser was turned on.

    Hi NYP LMS,

    The 2 options disabled do not stop a user from performing a copy/paste of text into a written response input field.

    If the Respondus Lockdown Browser supports the control of this function, and was enabled please log a support case with the Respondus support team to investigate the behaviour. Other options available to you would be different proctoring tools that support the control of the copy/paste function.

    If you feel there is an issue with the Quizzing tool please open a case with the D2L Support team.

    Hope this helps!
