As this free text-to-quiz converter requires your quiz to be in a fix format, you will need to make some small changes to your existing docs to use it. If you have a complex quiz document that includes images, you might want to consider our paid tool that doesn't require your quiz questions to be in a fixed template. Now, on with the article!
