Assuming you have sufficient permissions, you can export the survey - manual.limesurvey.org/Creating_surveys_-...ction#Common_Buttons
Capture_2014-03-20.png


And export the template - manual.limesurvey.org/The_template_edito...rt.2FCopy_a_Template

I have found why the message normally appears. It appears when a user attempts to advance without completing a mandatory question.

However, in perview group mode, this should not be the case (i.e. no "user" has attempted to advance anywhere).

Can you please attach a copy of the survey with only the offending group? I don't have time to go through a great long survey ;)

Well, I don't have an answer - it's gotta be a bug.

The bad news is that there are no more bug fixes for LS 2.0. The good news is that it only happens when reviewing the group, not when executing the survey.

Yes, the good news is it does not affect the execution! It is merely annoying when trying to get a sense of design and feel for the user experience of that section. Now I will go and find out if I add another group if the behaviour promugates or is confined to just the second group. I'll get back to you on that ASAP and then we can close this discussion I guess.


ETA: Nope, doesn't promulgate to a newly created group. It is specific to just that second group.

So, Now I will leave you with the conundrum (sorry 'bout that!) and thank you formally for your time (I appreciate it very much) and i will decide whether it is worth my while recreating the group as new or to just live with the inconvenience...

Is there a way of the poster marking a post to indicate that the issue has been resolved / not resolved but still concluded / not solved action still required (or similar) ?

More information:

I created a whole new section (group 2 made from scratch). It previewed and tested perfectly. Then I deleted the existing group 2 (ostensibly the one with the bug in it) and re-ordered the new group into the old gropup 2 position. Then the bug reappeared!!! So it has something to do with the POSITION - not the content -no matter what is in that position - it will have the bug in it.

I know you say there are to be no more bug fixes for LimeSurvey version 2 ...but you will need to fix it in the next version surely?
