Is this a regression from 4.1 or from 3.22?

The problem exists also on 4.1.
4.1.x was a fresh installation.

Regression from 3.X ,

3.X show all language (multi line)
And here : one language are not in view

Personnal opinion : must show ALL language (list style (3.X)) or only one (dropdown style (quick translate))

We might want to start a discussion about reverting question editor to LS3, and if this would fix a lot of bugs in one go.

At the moment we want to revert to the old HTML Editor. Let's first finish with that and come back to this one after the release of 4.4
