How to add a wordsearch question

The Wordsearch question type allows you to create this kind of puzzle very easily. Only the dimensions of the grid and the list of words to hide are needed. This type of question is auto-graded, so students can see their results once they finish the worksheet.

To create a wordsearch puzzle, you must first input the number of rows and columns that the grid must have, and how to hide the words in the grid (horizontally, vertically,...). Then just add the words to hide to the list and the wordsearch grid will be automatically generated.

If we want we can also change the background color of the cells, the color of the checked cells, the typography and font size of the letters any many more just by opening the style menu. To open this menu we just need to click on the button marked in red and the menu will appear like in the following image.

Here you can see how the wordsearch puzzle would look on the final worksheet.
