In a drag-and-drop gap fill, all the gaps are as wide as the widest content. This can lead to over-wide gaps, as in this bibliographical referencing exercise:





Would it be possible to have narrower gaps initially, which then expand to fit the text that is dragged into them?

This is the sort of gap fill behaviour I would like, if possible:

(Ignore the code, which I pinched from somewhere and don't fully understand.)

This is a good idea. I'll add it to our list of possible future developments.

Thanks

Also, sometimes you may actually want the width of the gaps to reflect the length of the answer.

In c-tests the second half of every other word is replaced with a gap, so ideally in is shown as i_ while internationalism is shown as internat________.
