Using parts of AMC - generating sheets and scanning

Added by Conor McDonagh 17 days ago

I'd like to utilise some of AMC functionality but not for MCQ.
Would it be very difficult (I'm not very knowledgable on latex) to re-use the pdf generation (using the .sty file) so that it makes sheets with choice boxes and writes the xy file. The MCQ database is much more complicated than I need. I would also like to use the scan recognition parts.
Any thoughts on how easy/hard it would be to change the .sty file to do something more simplified than current one does? I haven't a clear idea how the box coordinate data gets extracted and logged to the xy file.
Any advice?

Have a look at \AMC@tracebox (Position logging paragraph) in automultiplechoice.pdf that is built together with automultiplechoice.sty from the source.
