Regression: can no longer download a single question in Moodle XML format when previewing it

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      In Moodle <=3.11, when you were in the preview for a single question in the question bank, there was a link to 'Download this question in Moodle XML format' which was very useful.

      In the question bank changes in Moodle 4.0, this link was removed, which annoyed some people (with good reason. It was a useful link!)

      The long-term plan was alwasy to change to something better, something like what is descrived in MDL-77996. However, that still has not happened, and might not happen for some time.

      Therefore, I suggest that as a short-term measure, we just add back the 'Download this question in Moodle XML format' link on the Preview screen, and since this is functionality that was in 3.11 and is now missing, I suggest we treat this as a defect and fix it in all branches.

      (If you are not sure why this is so important: Obviously, if you just go to the preview screen from the question bank, by choosing Edit -> Preview there, then it is very easy to go back and Choose Edit -> Export as XML. However, for example, if you got to the preview some other way, for example from the page where you add Questions to a Quiz, then finding that question in the question bank is a big pain.)
