Summary15976: Expression manager not run on response exports resulting in unusable responses

When exporting responses from a survey the expression manager is not run on the responses leaving them to be in some cases unusable.

When trying to resolve the problem I found this similar problem

However when I tried to use the LSS file created by Denis it resulted in the same unusable response I was trying to resolve

When the responses are sent as a detailed email to the administrator, they work correctly. its just when exporting them in bulk or using the single queuexml pdf export

Steps To Reproduce

import the attached LSS file (created by Denis)
activate the survey
create a response
export the response

PDF export : no Expression (in reponse or question)
PDF Print answers : Expression.
My opinion : not a bug

Solution : construct a new export ?

This effects all exports. not just PDF's

Then what is the purpose of the expression engine switch? how does it influence the exports as it is not apparent. it seemed to have no effect at all.

  1. Headings : only the header, not the answer
  2. Use ExpressionScript code: mean

Maybe we can be more clear, but it's not "use ExpressionScript on text"
