Hi Everyone

I have an Array (flexible labels) with 31 answers (rows) but when I preview it the labels appear both at the top of the table and between the 25th & 26th row. :(

Can anyone tell me how do I stop this happening please?

Any help appreciated.

ThIt is considered to be a help for people, because when they scroll down, they loose the header of the table with the labels. So I seriously would recommend to leave it there. Usually it is less of a problem if you have a simple scale from 1-5 or something. But when the wording of the labels is important, I would think about leaving it.

Enough "advice"! ;-)

If you want to get rid of it, this is simple. Go to "global settings" -> "Miscellaneous" and change the figure at "Number of answers to show before repeating the headings in array question" from 25 to whatever value you consider best. I am not sure what will happen if you leave it empty...
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Here just a little update:
docs.limesurvey.org/tiki-index.php?page=...Survey#Miscellaneous
Number of answers to show before repeating the headings in array questions: With array type question, often you'll have a lot of subquestions, which - when displayed on screen - take up more than one page. The repeat-headers setting lets you decide how many answers should be displayed before repeating the header information for the question. A good setting for this is around 25. If you don't want the headings to repeat at all, set this to 0.

So if you don't want the headdings to repeat at all, put "0".
