I am not very familiar with examdesign. I use answers package together with
a small package I wrote for assignments.
There are two ways in which you can use the package.
You can invoke this package with nosolutionfiles option:
In this case the solution is given below the question.
If you use the package without this option, it writes the solution
to a separate file, which you can include if you want.
So, what I do is to have two lines,
and comment out whichever line I want according to necessity.
In addition there is a \writetofile command that writes text to
file and  Filesave environment as a part of this package.

See if you can use this package in tandem
 with examdesign package.
The documentation for the package is clear enough with some simple
examples.  I have used  this package quite a lot.
