It seems to depend on how the question was reached: if the question was opened via the invite-link and the resume-later feature, directly clicking "Resume Later" will clear the answer, while when reaching the question from a previous one, the answer is correctly saved.

this one is an old one and hard to fix one.

Well, deleting answers should be prevented in any case! The work-flow described above ("Click invitation link, click save and resume -> data deleted") may not be that uncommon so I vote for fixing this.

yes I agree, we have two requests about it on the LimeSurvey Professional Hosting. I'll take some time tomorow to see if I can fix without to much refactorisation.

Any progress on this? Looks like it's still occurring on 3.15.5+181115

I just test with last version

With no link between answer and token : enter toto + toto, save : get back to survey with a javascript alert (if ajax activated, OK without)

With token answer persistance : seems there are an issue : save form is shown even if not needed (i report the issu).
