Summary13427: Get order from previous question - Array (Numbers) - not working?
DescriptionGet order from previous question seems not to be working in LS 3.4.3 (not sure if it was working before).

I created two questions, Number1 and Number2

Number1: Multiple choice (randomized)
Number2: Array Numbers (get order from previous question: Number1)

The subquestion codes are similar in both questions. Therefore, the subquestions of the two questions should be displayed in the same order, but this does not happen. Please see below also the .lsg file.

Hope I do not do something wrong :) . If so, please let me know how this option is supposed to work.
TagsNo tags attached.

Googling I found this similar bug report from 6 years ago:

Not sure about this one. Didn't get it to work on 2.06 either, nor 2.73. Maybe we can setup all versions of LS on your system later, Dorin?

Did you have 2.06 and 2.73 setup on your machine, Dorin?

Nop. Another IRC user, @Deusdeorum, helped me test whether this functionality exists/works in LS 3, LS2.73 and LS 2.06. It did not work for him either. Maybe it was working in the early versions of LS (maybe LS2.00?)

OK, if it didn't even work at 2.06, then it's more like a feature request. Hm.

Ye, I couldn't get it to work in none of the above versions. Maybe it worked before 2.06, don't know.

@c_schmitz, maybe you could leave some comment or feedback here?

Well, if it didn't work since ever and nobody noticed it I don't see alot of priority right now to fix it.

A plugin system : order question by plugin : i think i already have this feature request, because in my case i have user who want order of subquestion (and question too …) by token. It's an example 11988
