The multiple choice with comments type question is not currently supported with queXML PDF output. There isn't an equivalent type for the paper version at the moment.

Is there a chance to fix that? Or at least a hint on where to look at in the source?
To use LS for our purpose we need to print out the results filled in by the participants in way that looks more or less similar to the entry-mask. This was the only way we could find - but now there's some important information missing....

Hi again.

Can you please test this change and see if it works for you:

Yes, this works! Thanks you!

Compared to the entry-fields in the survey the fields for the printed version are a bit big - but that is not a problem for us..

Thanks for the help!
