    Same as others have said: There's no toolbar in the new version of Kahoot.

    To have to create the text I want in PowerPoint, save it as an image and then upload it is a ridiculous waste of time. As a secondary math teacher, I would have to do this for almost every question and answer choice.

    I used to love Kahoot, but have been very frustrated with the new version. It is not as easy to use and has lost functionality on the teacher end. Please make the "update" as user friendly as the old version!

    There are too many other options for engaging online games for me to spend my time creating questions in a frustrating format. Please fix this!

    Same.  As a chemistry teacher, to do superscripts and subscripts is obviously a huge part of my Kahoots for formulas and whatnot...and now all of a sudden they are gone? 

    Looking at my old Kahoots, the superscripts and subscripts are still there, BUT if I try to edit the question that has them, they will reformat to being regular numbers and I can't get them back.  So, this is not good.  I am ashamed to be Kahoot Certified.

    As a math teacher, to lose the ability to do superscript and subscript and to do math symbols makes the use of Kahoot obsolete for me now.  I can't use it if I can't do those things anymore.  Any teacher that uses math in their subjects are going to be not using Kahoot any longer.  Too bad.  My students liked it.  They'll be disappointed.

    The most recent update is not as good as before. I lose superscript and I have to access the menu to set time limit for each question.

    As a finance teacher, I use superscript/subscript all the time. I used to write my questions in word and copy and paste to my kahoot quizzes. But the most recent update changes my superscripts back to normal size numbers and there is no toolbar for me to change the format of the numbers. Please fix this.

    I agree with the above statements. My students just turned me onto Kahoot recently. I made a quiz last week just fine and told them I'd be making another one tonight. But without the use of exponents, now I can't. I will not be using Kahoot anymore until this functionality returns. Please fix this problem immediately!

    Getting so fed up with everything having to be improved all the time -- especially when improvements make things worse.  Not everything needs to be changed in the name of progress.  Getting rid of the toolbar.... who's brainstorm was that?  They should be fired.  Please see to that right away.  Oh yeah and GET THE DAMN TOOLBAR BACK UP!

    Please restore the toolbar!  I can't use Kahoot without subscripts, superscripts, and math symbols!  The new format is VERY frustrating to use and makes it much more difficult to write quizzes.

    Hi all!

    I'm very sorry. This is a known issue that we're working to fix ASAP. It should still be there. It wasn't removed (intentionally).
