Answer placeholder is a frame that replaces a part of the original exercise code, where the students will have to write their solutions.
When a placeholder already exists, the context menu command Add Answer Placeholder is replaced with the set of commands which enable editing a placeholder, deleting it, or deleting all answer placeholders.
If a student feels that he/she is unable to solve a problem, he/she may ask for help.
The following functionality is intended for the educators!
