      Description

      This debate has been split out of MDL-66816.

      The Moodle UX team said "In Moodle, the edit menu always goes right on the far right please put it there." That looks like this:

      However, I disagree with their view. I think it is more useable to have the menu closer to the name of the question you are acting on (but still to the right of it.) The creator/modifier names are really only metadata. If the action menu was right on the far right, then you would have to trace your finger across the screen to make sure you got the right menu. Edit menu close to the question name looks like this:

      Lets see if this gets enough votes to justify the change.
