# separate mc section and open answer section printout for efficient paper usage (Feature #250)

Status: Start date: Closed 01/02/2014 Low - 100% LaTeX 1.4.0

Description

In some exams you want to use multiple choice questions and open questions.
This describes the situation when you use a separate answer sheet.
While mc questions can be put into a two column layout (no problem if you have 6 or less choices), but the answers to open questions need
more space when hand written.
This could be accomplished if the \AMCform command was re-factored such that by default combines all sections (elements), but that it would be possible to also render the elements separately.
So e.g. a command \\AMCformElement{element name } as in \\AMCformElement{general} and \\AMCformElement{open} would do the trick for me.

so that one can retrieve (and insert) elements separately. The new
macro \AMCformFilter, together with \AMCifcategory, can be used to
insert answers for questions from some category (eg. open questions).
