Importing Questions

There is a method for broad, sweeping changes, but it is a bit intense. You can export the title to an XML file. If all of your questions were imported the same way, then they likely share the same traits (same X-Y position, same size maybe, similar names, etc.).You can use your favorite text editing software (the industry's darling seems to be Find And Replace) to replace several traits. Be sure that you can search with wildcards and preserve that text. Even MS Word can perform most of these tasks. For example, if all your tests come in at (0,0), you can look for the text before and after the position that all share the same characters. Then do a F&R to change the (0,0) to (200, 100). Note that these will not literally be "(0,0)". As I said, this is a bit intense, so don't do this if you don't feel comfortable with it.Then, open a new title. DO NOT DO THIS WITH YOUR EXISTING TITLE. Import the XML into the new title. Make sure that it works as it should. If it does not, then you may have corrupted your XML file. Delete that title and try again.Hope that helps. It's not advice I would often give to a new user, but as long as you keep the original title intact, you aren't going to screw things up. It's like an Etch-a-Sketch in that regard.Kevin
