Re: How to add "exam" to document class?

I did a lot more experimenting and learning about layout files. I think it's possible to do away with the Question_Lists and Answers "--begin--" and "--end--" separators by using Flex insets for the corresponding environments. The cool thing I learned is that you can experiment/d...
