Hey there,
I have some trouble with the semantic differential question type. I downloaded it and imported it succesfully into my survey. But I had to choose english as basic language to do so, although it should rather be german. Thats not so much a problem, but the problem is that in case of that special question, lime does not automatically copy the answers from english to german (only the first one) and it is not possible to add further answers in the german window.
I dont know if this in an old and known problem or a new one.
At the moment I am using version 1.85, but I´m waiting for our administrator to install the latest version. Do you think this might solve the problem?
Thanks a lot in advance for an answer!
(I would have liked to enter this in the bug-reporter, but this task seemed quite complicated to me)

Hi,
I'm not sure if this is a bug. Can you post step-by-step instructions how to reproduce the problem?

Thanx a lot for your answer, Mazi!
Alright:
- create or take a survey with english as basic language and german as additional language
- download and import the semantic differential question type
- try to add or change answers
- have a look if the answers are replicated in the german version (in my survey they aren´t)
Might this be because this question type is only compatible with english surveys? Would be a great pity!
Greetings, Eli

Now I think I found out what the problem was: you must not edit the preexisting answer set, but delete all preexisting answers, create your own new ones and the problem doesn´t show up anymore! (the new answers are then as usually copied to the other language´s answer set)
Cheers and fine sunday!

The problem was caused by the imported question. The survey has two languages, English and German while the question only supports English text. Therefore you have to edit the German strings later.

When importing questions/groups the languages always have to match.

This message displayed...

File upload succeeded.

Reading file..

Error

This file is not a LimeSurvey question file. Import failed. " :ohmy:

I followed this link docs.limesurvey.org/Question+type+-+Arra...+f%C3%BCr+LimeSurvey

Could anyone assist me how to put semantic differential question types ??? :dry:

I actually needed " not at all familiar 1 2 3 4 5 very familiar " this question type

" Label Radio Radio Radio Label "

Any ideas ? :huh:

I actually found the answer in your own link very insightfull
docs.limesurvey.org/Question+type+-+Arra...+f%C3%BCr+LimeSurvey

so use array
make the answer options '1, 2, 3, 4, 5'
and for subquestions type (in the quickformat) 1;not at all familiar|very familiar

Good luck!
