What's New (2021-01-20) Defined two commands \doNotRandomizeChoices
and \allowRandomizedChoices; these turn off and turn on the randomization
of choices in MC and MS questions.
What's New (2020-12-30)
exerquiz: Minor bug fixes; converted some inline JS to JS in
the defineJS env.
eforms: New keys for option list of form macros: \rectW, \rectH,
\width, \height, \scalefactor. Also introduced are \textFontDefault,
\textSizeDefault, and \btnSpcr. All form fields and link annotations
now obey \pdfSpacesOn (and \pdfSpacesOff).
insdljs: Added \Thread and \Launch actions; \dfnJSCR and \dfnJSCRDef.
New options of defineJS: \makecmt and \typeset. Improved the defineJS
environment. Refer to http://www.acrotex.net/blog/?p=1442
for a full discussion of the defineJS and all its features.
What's New (2020-11-20) Fixed minor, yet critical, bug converning duplicate
definition of \URI.
What's New (2020-11-11) Added new command \SpellCheck, to check the spelling
of a fill-in question (exerquiz). Added width, height, scalefactor keys to
form fields to rescale fields (eforms).
What's New (2020-03-14) Minor changes that support new features of eqexam.
What's New (2020-01-01) Replace use of \count0 with new counter \eqtmpcnta,
in situation, the value of \count0 was leaking out giving incorrect page

make it easy to change the section-type for the solution pages.
What's New (2019-08-13) Use \protect when formatting a enhanced preview value.
Other minor changes and bug fixes.
What's New (2019-05-24) Added the enhanced preview feature. When in effect

What's New (2028/12/05) Some changes in exerquiz to support mi-solns. Require aeb-comment

I maintain a web site featuring TeX/LaTeX/PDF stuff called
AcroTeX (www.math.uakron.edu/~dpstory/acrotex.html). There you
will find the home web page of the AcroTeX eDucation Bundle.
Examples for AeB have been moved to

Additional examples are posted on the AcroTeX Blog page
Now, I simply must get back to my retirement.
