    1. End Exam: Use this at the end of your exam to end and upload.
    2. Save: Your test will be auto-saved every 10 seconds with a full Auto-Backup every 2 minutes.  If you wish to save an extra backup, you can do so on this menu.
    3. Edit: You can Undo, Redo, Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete (PC-Only) and Select All (PC-Only).
    4. Format: You can Bold, Italic, Underline, Left, Center or Right Justify, Zoom (PC-Only) and add a select group of Special Characters.

  2. Mac users can make the Exam4 window larger by dragging the bottom right corner of the window or by clicking on the “+” button in the grey toolbar at the top.
  3. To the right of your answer page, you will see the time and save bar that progresses based on the 10 second auto-saves and resets after each full backup in the upper right-hand corner.
  4. You will also have the ability to Insert Answer Separator and show or hide the Document Statistics.  The document stats will track the number of words, lines, characters and characters with spaces.  If you are on a PC, you may need to use the scroll bar at the bottom of the Document Stats window to see all of the columns depending on your screen resolution.

    5. When you are finished, press “Hide” to close the Multiple Choice answer box
