When using the \fillwithlines{\stretch{1}} command inside an \uplevel-esque environment, the lines do not appear. This issue does not happen when a length is specified to fillwithlines instead.

\documentclass{exam}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{showframe}

\begin{document}
\begin{questions}
\question The apples and oranges say it takes two to tangarine.

\begin{parts}
\part[5] The bananas have come to say hello!

\uplevel{
\fillwithlines{\stretch{1}}
}
\begin{EnvUplevel}
\fillwithlines{\stretch{1}}
\end{EnvUplevel}

\part[5] The bananas have come to say hello!

\begin{EnvUplevel}
\fillwithlines{10cm}
\end{EnvUplevel}
\end{parts}
\end{questions}
\end{document}

The compiled LaTeX code, showing that the first question does not have lines yet the second does.

It might by a bug. I made same changes to the \uplevel command to make it work.

  • I think this breaks uplevelling normal text, e.g. \uplevel{Some text} or the equivalent environment one. However, I can change one of them and use the other one for text, so works for me :P Oct 27, 2021 at 7:14
