Summary17633: Changing Array (Texts) sub questions' label at runtime, manipulates question design
DescriptionI have an Array (Texts) question in my bilingual survey. After activating the survey, I changed the label of one sub-question and then I clicked Save button. after reviewing the question, I found that some sub-questions have been deleted from Y-Scale and new sub-questions have been inserted in X-Scale sub-questions.

**I have noticed that the issue happens when Y-Scale sub-questions have same code as the one specified for X-Scale sub-questions (e.g. "SQ001" is defined for first Y sub-question code and also for first X sub-question code)

**Not sure if same problem is affecting other question types.

**Check the case with question G01Q07 in the attached lss.
Steps To ReproduceSteps to reproduce
1. Create Array(Texts) question.
2. Specify sub-questions at Y-Scale and X-Scale using default code generated by LS (SQ001, SQ002....etc).
3. Activate the survey.
4. After activation, edit the text of first Y-Scale sub-question and click "Save and close" button.
5. Click Edit button again to view the question design.

Expected result
Sub-question label should be modified as per user input without any further impact.

Actual result
Y-Scale sub-questions with code similar to the ones defined in X-Scale sub-questions get deleted, and X-Scale sub-questions get duplicated.

TagsNo tags attached.
