Edit new quizzes question

Is there a way to edit/change the question type in new quizzes?  I would like to change a question from essay to fill in the blank, but cannot find a way to do that without creating a new question.

@Matthew8  Unfortunately, the only option is to start over by creating a new question. This usually isn't too much of a problem if you catch it right away. But I've known several instructors who have built long quizzes, then after some reflection, decided to change the question types (either to change questions from manually to automatically graded, multiple choice to multiple answer, or any number of other reasons) and they essentially had to rebuild the entire quiz. It's definitely a pain point and a change from the behavior in Classic Quizzes.
