Steps To Reproduce

Create ranking question (type R)
add items to rank
test in preview
edit question again
save -> Can not be saved "Question cannot be stored. Please check the answer options for duplicates or empty codes." ... they are all ok, actually no need ti change anything from a working question - the error still occurs.

Can't reproduce the issue unfortunately. Could you please send a .lss file where this issue is reproducible?

While this is incredibly strange, this happens onnly and only when you preview the question and then, edit, and then save. Thank you for your report!

LE: issue caused by random order question attribute. If enabled, it does not allow the questions to be saved without a page refresh.

LE2: Actually, you cannot edit at all the question if Random order is enabled

Hi cdorin,
thank you for your feedback - and I am actually happy, that, if I understand you correct, this is reproducible.
The LE and LE2 are internal notes - and not some question to me? If they are a question and you require something from me, please write again.
