I need to update the options in a TON of multiple choice questions (set as drop-downs) – they should all have the same options, but almost every one needs to change. Is there a way to change multiple questions at once in Lectora 16 (csv import/export options are more limited)?

Hi Nix, depends a bit on how your Lectora file is setup, and what the changes are. For sure there are ways to speed up this process… If you attach a sample with several ( not TONS please, but a representable amount ) of questions and let me know the changes you need, i can check whether the approach i got in mind works. And if, will describe it in detail.
Tim reads my mind….. the .awt is nothing more then a xml like file you can open in any texteditor. If you know what to change and where, thats the quickest way…make sure though to keep copies of the originals, cause an error is easy to make and then it can get tricky.
The choices of questions are in their own tags, no rtf-formatting. It should be possible to find “The old options text” and replace with “The new text”, “Replace all” and it’s done in seconds. Or better replace “<choicetext>The old text” with “<choicetext>The new text” in case the options text occurs somewhere else in the course. This won’t help if the questions text shall be changed and that would be more difficult as it’s <rtf>
