# Points not appearing in main question

For some reason, the points DO appear in the parts and subparts but it doesn't appear in the main questions in this document. I tried removing the 3 lines between the 2 ** too in case they were causing it. Nothing helped.

If I have parts in the question, they do appear in the right margin like [10] as desired...

I gave \pointpoints{ mark}{ marks} but I don't get "marks" after the parts and one question is messing up.

You have redefined the appearance of your question. Therefore, the documentclass does not know, where to put the points. Add \thepoints to where ever you like:

% arara: pdflatex

\usepackage{lmodern,setspace}
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\onehalfspacing
\marksnotpoints
\bracketedpoints
\pointsinrightmargin
\qformat{{\large \textbf{Question \#\thequestion}}\hfill[\thepoints]\vspace{0.4cm}}

\begin{document}
\begin{questions}
\question[10]
Find the distance
\end{questions}
\end{document}


Off-topic: Do load siunitx instead of units and xcolor instead of color

Edit: If you want to get rid of the word "marks", replace \marksnotpoints by \pointname{}. All of this stuff is explained in the well written manual of exam

• This gives [10 marks] beside the main questions but the points for the parts/subparts remains as [10] only. How do I make them both of one type? – Zack Fair May 12 '15 at 10:53
• @FahimAbdullah Of which type do you want? – LaRiFaRi May 12 '15 at 11:36
• Rid of the marks is fine as you gave. Thanks. I can imagine it's \pointname{ marks} for the other. – Zack Fair May 12 '15 at 11:48
• It seems the parts aren't getting the "marks" when I put \pointname{ marks}. And there is also a weird thing happening here in one question (edited the main post) – Zack Fair May 21 '15 at 11:45
