Hi all,

I am using the latest version (11026) of limesurvey and I want to use a slider with text to both end of the slider. However, the "Slider left/right text separator" feature in question type "multiple numerical input" does not have any effect. I tried different ways. What is the correct way to do it?
Help says "Answer|left-slider-text|right-slifer-text text separator" but this does not work.

Thanks

At the advanced question settings you have to define "Slider left/right text separator" like "|"

As answer option you can then set "Age: |I am|years old".

Can you post a link to an active survey so we can have a look?

Can you also attach your questions as .lsq file?

Follow this link
survey.ibp.fraunhofer.de/limesurvey/index.php?sid=42377&lang=de
It should do exactly the same as your example.

Can you show a screenshot of the section where you put the "Answer|left-slider-text|right-slifer-text text separator" part?

There are two things you need to do:

1. Tell Limesurvey which character is supposed to be the separator in advanced settings:

2. Put the text in the subquestion text with the left and right scale text:

Have you done both steps?
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Nice to see my friends from Fraunhofer Institues here.

About your issue: I attached my question for download but it generally matches holchs approach: set the separator and then create the answer text accordingly.

Hi,

thank you for your support. The solution you provided worked. The mistake I made was that I did not properly define the separator. This mistake would habe been avoidable. Sorry for that.

Greetings
