Hi Gary,

Are these published files or are they files that have been uploaded to
a course?

I am going to assume they are published files... If not let me know.

There is nothing in the interface to allow one to quickly zip up files
in CSTR and download a single file.

But one could login into the machine on the shell level and zip up a
bunch of files that way. (Or if you want to you could enable Samba and
export the user's CSTR area as a windows fileshare...)

Not quite yet. We have worked on an IMS export of a course. Which is
nearly done.

If you are running version 1.3 I could show you what line to uncomment
so you could try that feature out.
