Hi Wolfgang, Thanks for your answer which solves the problem I encountered. However the block mechanism seems to have some limitations regarding how a certain block is absent (for instance when the whole solution to a problem is absent).
In another thread I’ll be more precise regarding what I think is missing in the block mechanism: Hans talked about a « coupling » mechanism in mkiv, but I don’t know whether this is already done or not. In my opinion, what we need is a coupling mechanism which couples for instance each exercise with its hint, and its solution, with a built-in interaction and when for instance a hint or a solution is not there, one does not need to increment manually a counter.
