I'm designing a survey, with the portuguese version 1.72. Using a numerical input, how to allow an answer with a negative value?

I need to ask some financial information and some itens could be negatives. There are no way to do that? Nor with a newer version of lime survey?

I don't think that this will be different in a newer version.

So let's see if we can find a different solution. Maybe you can have a question with two columns of numbers, one for the positive and one for the negative figures?
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Simply use a text input field.

ok.
Perhaps it's better to use a multiple text input.

Thanks Mazi and Holch
