A note on copying questions from Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word adds certain hidden characters and markups to every document. If you directly copy text from a Word document, these hidden artifacts can create the problem, especially in mobile devices. To avoid this issue, if you are copying any question from a Word document, please follow these steps:

Copy the text from the Word Document into Notepad. This removes all hidden markups.
Then copy the text from Notepad into SmartWinnr → Question box.
