Summary15506: One of two consecutive multiple choice questions with comments does not display correctly in answer backend


If you have a survey with two consecutive multiple choice questions with comments in two consecutive question groups then the questions and answers are merged into one in the backend (see attached screenshot).

I also attached a lsa file where the error can be reproduced. This error occured in version 3.19.1+191009 and also in Version 2.05+ Build 140320 so it seems pretty old.

Thanks a lot for a fix!

Steps To Reproduce
  • create survey with two question groups
  • the last question of group 1 should be a multiple choice question with comments
  • the first question of group 2 should also be a multiple choice question with comments
  • start survey and fill in an example survey
  • go to the backend to view the answers
  • you will see that the answers of both multiple choice questions with comments are merged
TagsNo tags attached.

Hello Hulotte,
This should already be fixed in recent versions.
Can you please check if this issue still exists in the latest version of LimeSurvey and let us know?
Thank you!
