My crack at multiple-choice questions in LyX (not sure if it was an
adaptation of some other document on-line) is attached. It uses the
article class, customizable lists module and branches. Feel free to
re-use it.

I am looking forward though to some usable LyX layout to 'exam' class
or similar. Most of all I'd like to be able to generate 2-3 versions
of the same multiple-choice exam with randomized questions and
answers. Does anyone know how to do this?

 Try with Pandoc (http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/) which can read LaTeX
 and export to AsciiDoc.

Thanks to you and Rainer!
Pandoc looks very good. I will try it with this. Never heard of it before.


Yaml to Beamer converter?

2013-02-03 Thread Steve Litt
Hi all,

This isn't really on topic, but the LyX list contains the most LaTeX
knowledgeable people I know.

Does anyone know of a YAML to Beamer converter program? I'd love to
author my presentations in YAML and then convert and run them in Beamer.

Also, can anyone suggest a venue where this question *would* be on
topic?

Thanks

SteveT

Google led me to this:
http://code.google.com/p/yml2tex/

Not that I have ever used this (or even YAML itself, for that matter).
