Summary14370: QueXML export (Print answers) of a ranking question showing name of available options instead of "Rank #"
Thanks for developing LimeSurvey!
I have an instance with version 3.15.5+181115 in and we're using it for a survey about the future Debian release artwork.
The survey consists in one question type Ranking, the options are shown as HTML images (loaded from the original places where the artwork is stored,
I'm attaching a QueXML PDF export of the question, and an xml export too.

When the user performs the survey and tries to print their answers, the QueXML export of their answers produces a confusing PDF, showing the names of the available options instead for "Rank #1", "Rank #2", etc (see attached buster-artwork-survey-823746-queXML-answers.pdf as an example).
Steps To ReproduceIf you want to vote for your favourite Debian Buster artwork, you can use our survey to reproduce the issue (but please vote only once):
1.- Go to
2.- Do the survey
3.- Select "Print your answers"
4.- Select "QueXML Export"

Or alternatively you can:
1.- Create a survey in some other instance
2.- Create a question with type Ranking
3.- In the answer options, include images from external URLs, e.g. <img alt="futurePrototype" src="" style="height:90px;" />
4.- Do the survey
5.- Select "Print your answers"
6.- Select "QueXML Export"
TagsNo tags attached.
