Random Question Selection

We're getting asked a lot if Question Writer supports random question selection. Randomization isn't something that's built in and it took a little creativity to work out how to do it, but now by combining a randomizer and the branching functionality, it can be supported inside the existing framework quite elegantly.
Here's how it works, the randomizer (itself a flash component question) chooses which questions should be asked (4 from 10 in this example). Then there is a piece of branching logic before each question which skips the question if the randomizer hasn't flagged that question.
I expect to be able to make the source available next week, but in the meantime, here's the example test of European capitals, with an aquarium in the background (as if a test of European capitals weren't enough of a draw already).
