Summary14977: Hard to navigate in big survey

It's really hard to navigate in big survey,
2.6lts have a dropdown with current Question inside this group + a next/previous button : it's far as great … but still really better …

Strangely : open group are not stable : sometimes current group is open some other are closed and some other open : maybe start by open onlycurrent group ?

Steps To Reproduce

Have a big survey, with docs survey : ls3_sample_survey_multilingual_fr_de_en_it

  1. Import
  2. Open the 3 1st group
  3. Search «Single choice question [dual]»
  4. Click : current question are 2 screen after (screen : 1920x1080)
Additional Information

Sometime : hide manually other group seems to work, but not always …

More like feature request than bug?

Unsure here : when you have a big survey with lot of question : you think LimeSurvey is unuable . Unusable => bug, no ?

Idk. Saying a feature doesn't cover all use-cases is not the same as the feature has bugs.

Once more UX resources will be put into the software, we will reanalyze this issue (i agree with you).

Have more than 15 question in survey seem majority , no ?

Current browse work good with 5/6 questions, not more. Previous one are not great too. But when using 2.6lts system even after year: i confirm : previous navigation in big survey are really best.

Maybe add a "searchable" dropdown with only current group ? And a next/previous can be a good idea.
