Unfortunately, I cannot replicate the behaviour in 4.14. Could you please update and try once more? (indeed, that was an issue in the past)

almost forgot. I did update to version 4.1.16+200407 - but the problem still remains (see new attached image).
As in another bug report, I noted, that I actually exported the LSS, created a new MySQL DB and did a fresh installation of version 4.1.16+200407, then imported the lss - but the problems (yes, all), remained.

The issue may be resolved: In my updated version 4.2.4+200520 I was yet unable to reproduce it. I am able to copy a matrix question (even with random sub-questions). Thank you!
