Summary15824: Misleading GUI for entering subquestion details when using Array texts or similar question types

For the array texts and similar question types you have to add two different kind of subquestions:
a) the items for the first column -> Y scale
b) the options for the columns -> X scale

But the interface for entering these details just looks like there is a bug and you have to enter subquestions twice, see screenshot.

We really need a better GUI design here. The user has to be told why there are two different kinds of subquestions and what details have to be added and which fields/setions.

Steps To Reproduce

Create an array text question and check the subquestion settings at the bottom.
