Summary14641: Error when copying a survey to create a new one

There is some errors when I want to copy an old survey to create a new one. I joined the question (lsq file).
The copy is Ok except for this question. The question text is copied but the answers options are not copied!
I my case, two of the answers text contain a simple quote (')... I wonder if this is not the same problem as a previous bug I've just noticed, see:
Maybe an issue with special quotes not correctly escaped?

Steps To Reproduce

Create a survey with the joined question. The copy the survey.

TagsNo tags attached.
Complete LimeSurvey version number (& build)Version 3.16.0+190225

Can't reproduce this issue, it works as expected for me.
If you can reproduce it once more, please send .lss export files, one created before joining question and one after joining.

Oups... my mistake (but the translation is confusing). When copiing a survey from an old one, you have the option "Exclude answers". That's not that clear; I thought it was the answers of the participants!!! But in fact it is the answer options (in case of a 'List' question).

So this issue can be closed?
