comment Generate exam from a question bank?
Elaborating further: I'd like to take all 100 of the Chapter 5 questions I've typed up over the years and put them in one question bank. I'd like to be able to randomly select, say, 5 of them, thereby generating a short practice test for my students. I may generate 5 such exams that they could use over the course of a week to prepare for the Ch 5 exam. Right now, I do this manually (by cut and pasting), but of course am looking for a better way.

Perhaps, but I am not familiar with Perl. My motivation was to take the existing functionality of the exam documentclass and just automate things via a question bank.

Sure thing! I am open to anything that works. Also, say I had 20 questions in the bank. It would be important for me to be able to specify that I want, say, 5 questions (pseudo)randomly chosen from the bank.

comment tikz tree fork down edge labels
I'd like for the text to run horizontally but be positioned just to the right of that vertical line. Imagine if I had placed that blue text in a horizontal line 2mm to the right of the center of that first vertical line stemming from the 3.

So "try using to[zigzag] rather than trying to manually recreate that behavior yourself each time".
