Hi

There's a gap between my question and the phrase "choose one of the following answers". Furthermore, it is consistent between each question. Is there anyway to change the gap?

Can I simply delete the phrase "choose one of the following answers?"

thanks

The spacing is probably caused by extra line breaks in the editor.

You can remove the phrase for each question by setting "Hide tip" to yes.

If you want to remove it from all questions, add the following to the end of template.css:
span.questionhelp {
	display: none;
}

I just came by, but now there came up a question I always wanted to know. Can you overwrite this default question help text somehow?
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Well, yeah, I could always go into the hard code as well. ;-)

Usually the default text is fine, but then sometimes, for specific questions, you might want to change it, just for this specific question in this specific questionnaire.

When I do it in the language file it will show up in all other questions of the same type, not only in the current questionnaire, but in all questionnaires, or am I wrong?

Adding the following to a template.js file will change the text for only the surveys using that template.
 
	$(document).ready(function() {
		$('.list-radio span.questionhelp').text('Some new help text for radios.');
		$('.list-dropdown span.questionhelp').text('Some new help text for dropdowns.');
	});

In general there is no other possibility then the ones mentioned. There is a help text section when adding a question so these auto-added texts are not that useful, that's why we implemented a question attribute to get rid of it.

I noticed this too. It seems the <p> tag has been added to some questions. I had to edit my questions using the advanced options and viewing the source.

Can you try to find out at which question types these <p> tags are added by Limesurvey so we can try to debug and fix this annoying behavior!?

I used both multiple options and list radio. The <p> tags were included on only some of the questions using either question type. This is the first survey I've created. I've reviewed all questions to see if I could find some type of similarity to help troubleshoot but did not see anything obvious. If I notice some type of pattern I will post back.
