Offtopic: Why can you select Product Version: 4.0.0-RC2. When I post or edit a bugreport I have no 4.0.0-RC2 in mantis?

Because I am **Super Man** ?

Else : Like to have your opinion on usage of question editor in 4.0 ?

I see the issues with the subquestion alignment. I will fix that.

For the arrangement of the settings, where would you have put it?
A separate screen for it is off the table. It needed to be integrated.

This felt to me like a natural position and the first tests we've made with a few of our customers show only positive comments.
A little scrolling doesn't hurt and most people don't bother about this, also you can use keyboard shortcuts to save (Ctrl+Shift+S) if you are in a hurry.

Maybe add an edit button just for answer or subquestions ?
And a save button too.

I mean : save and edit «Just this block»

When testing first : we test more simple answers (since sub question are broken at start) …

And **Natural position of a save or submit button is After all the input …** or or etc …

**A little scrolling** It's NOT a little scrolling …

@cdorin : since this old issue are never be resolved , set to markus.

See the screencast : A lot of go up/go down + a lot of extra button (for example : you can easily click on Overview when going up).
