Summary16503: Indefinitely loading question
DescriptionI have a survey containing a number of questions, but when I open them up to inspect them or edit them, they tend to get stuck loading indefinitely. Each individual question seems relatively consistent about which sections fail to load (whether it is the Subquestions/Display/etc section, or also the General settings section, or just the entire question.)
Steps To ReproduceI don't know.
Additional InformationI was originally on an older version of limesurvey, but tried to fix the problem by buying an update key and updating.
TagsNo tags attached.

I guess I should add, there have also been some other issues, including problems with saving changes to survey questions, problems with adding new response options, etc.. I don't know if these less-blocking problems have anything to do with this bigger one.

For us to be able to investigate this issue please attach question sample survey demonstrating the issue, either as .lss file (survey structure) or (even better) as .lsa file (survey archive).

Just attach it to this issue, and we will have a look.
Thank you!

It's apparently fixed if I clear the local storage. So I guess the problem is that LimeSurvey eventually exceeded the local storage limit and didn't reduce it? Either way this is no longer a blocking problem for me as I have just cleared the local storage.

I get this error when I open another question, I don't know if this is the reason it doesn't reduce its local storage use.
