Setting Default Hint Shape coordinates for all Quiz slides

How can I globally set the xy coordinates for the shapes that are added as feedback hints in a GIFT file?

 

Consider this simple GIFT content:

::Fruits::Which fruit is yellow? {
~Grape
#That can't be right! Try again.
=Banana
#Yes! That's right!
~Orange
#Now you're being silly.
~Strawberry
#Never seen one of those.
}

Note that the feedback for each answer is preceded by #.

 

When imported to a project, all four of the feedback comments appear in four separate Default Hint Shape objects in the upper right hand corner. I can easily update the xy coordinates to place each shape where I want it, and also change the size of the shape. But, if I import a GIFT with 20 MC questions with four answers each, that would mean having to adjust 80 objects. That's inefficient and prone to error.

 

Can I pre-set xy positions and size for these objects?

Thanks for any ideas!

Those are Advanced Answer Captions, not Hint Captions although they use the same Object style. Only MCQ slides with one correct answer support that type of Advanced Answer Caption.

This is a real problem because those captions do not appear on master slides, which means you cannot use them to change and fix their location/size. Moreover since they do not have a specific Object style, you cannot use the hamburger menu to apply the size/location to other objects (on other quiz slides).

At this moment I cannot think of a possible workaround, formatting of quiz slides is waiting in vain since many versions for a real upgrade. It is even worse for fluid boxes projects.

Ah. I was afraid of that. 

 

Thanks for clarifying, Lilybiri.
