|Summary||18310: Inconsistent GUI: Sort alphabetically vs. random order|
Radiobutton-type question has setting "Sort answers alphabetically" with switch On/Off and choise "Random order" with possible values "Yes" and "No". It seems illogical.
Harder question: would it be good if these would be one three-value setting, as one can not have both random order and alphabetic order in the same time? I'm not sure if it would work or not.

As my comment in the forum - https://forums.limesurvey.org/forum/development/128030-gui-inconsistency-sort-alphabetically-vs-random-order#231158
A 3-way "Answer order" setting with values "Normal", "Random" and "Alphabetic" would be optimum but at the very least it should be indicated that the current settings are exclusive and which takes precedence (seems that random order has precedence).
Our usability specialist also said that this should be a three-valued setting.
Agree and support changing this!
Just to double check, which screen are you refrring to?
Options would be:
@gabrieljenik, it is the list-radio type question but may apply to other types as well.
So, combining "Sort answers alphabetically" (alphasort) and "Random order" (random_order).
Yes, your options are correct.
gabrieljenik, that is just what I mean.
(In general we should think how to handle setting combinations that are not meaningfull, but that's another story.)
