@cdorin : previous assigned to Markus.

Here : if user didn't see error : they open more tickets on supprt : more work for you . It's a **major** issue right ?

PS : we add more error and more error shown in previous version : because when we do survey : it's really more interesting to have the error directly.

But we need to think again whole Question Editor ..... in my opinion.

When starting 4.0.0 with the first screenshot idea from jello (?) : i think we have :

Real ajax with separated part ,

Quick screenshit for idea : Each red block are ajaxed with 2 state

- View state
    - Show div with ExpressionScripted (when needed : text and forced) by default
    - No dropdown, no textarea not a form
    - Have a _edit_ button (one by block
- Edit state
    - Shown textarea/text etc ...
    - Save button + cancel button
    - When Save or cancel : balc to the view
    - Reload **only** this part

There are a clean separation between Answers block + Subquestion block + Advanced settings block . Put Subquestion as same place than advanced settings it's a big error.

> Real ajax with separated part ,

This puts unnecessary load on our servers, so I'd prefer if we ripped that out sometime in the future. But we'll see.

> Put Subquestion as same place than advanced settings it's a big error

Carsten's idea, IIRC. But really, this should be done by our UX designer in the future.

But I agree that the summary part should not look like the editor. It's confusing.

Did you really understand what is ajax system ?

When you want to edit Question->text : you load only text + help + title : less part
When you save : you save only text+help+title
1. Question
2. QuestionI10n

Currently : when update a Array text with 100 subquestion Y and 5 submquestion X + attribute : you load a **reallly** big page. And you send more data to server, and you save

1. Question
2. QuestionI10n
3. All QuestionAttributes
4. All SubQuestions
5. All SubQuestionsi10n

Tell me when the server do more things ....

Ajax allow server to do really less things ....

Sorry, I meant our current Ajax system, which contains a lot of duplicated data being sent from the server.

Oh yes :) pjax .... are not ajax ....

Nope, not even pjax. Check the network tab when entering question editor.

Hello DenisChenu,
I checked this with the latest version and could not reproduce, so this is most likely fixed for good.
Therefore, I am closing this issue. If you still can reproduce the issue using the latest version, please feel free to re-open the issue.
Thank you!
