Remove "No Answer?
Also, would it be able to edit the tip? For ex. Instead of saying "Check any that apply", can I change it to say "Check all that apply"? The latter seems to make more sense in my opinion.
Now to "no answer". There is a setting in general settings "Show 'no answer' option for non-mandatory questions:". [Hmm, I only see this now, but this should actually be read "for mandatory questions" I think.

I have a question about this setting. We have enabled to 'no answer' option for the survey but now the 'no answer' option that is added to each question is ticked by default. Can the radio button be set to unticked so none of the radio buttons are selected?

Would be great if you could list different solutions there.
The cleanest solution I think is to not explicitly select it, directly in limesurvey's code.
The attached patch (.txt added to allow for uploading) removes this.
Based on limesurvey250plus-build160715.tar.gz
I think it would be a great addition to make this simple change switchable from the GUI (either per survey or at least globally).
Selecting "no answer" now and going back again makes the radio button be unselected again. This might be suboptimal but I don't think it's a big spoiler. It seems there's no difference between explicitly selecting "no answer" and giving no answer. Without further research, it seems both values likely result in a NULL (that is, no change whatsoever to the default value in the database). The only possibility to fix this would be to explicitly write a value to the DB indicating "no answer" has been selected. Defining such a value yourself (as a survey admin) is sometimes possible, using bipolar matrix questions (those defined by subquestion text "not at all | very much"), it is not.
The patch might be incomplete as not all question types might be covered. But you get the point.
from my decade's experience in opinion and market research:
You should never use this precoded and predelected "no answer". People like comfortable things and what is more comfortable than this preselected option to proceed in the survey without having to use your brains?
In most cases, really in most cases you can define your own "DKNA" code with the advantage that in the analysis, let's say by SPSS you have ONE "missing value" code.
And you can style it that this answer option is less suggestive (smaller font, grayed, or so)
tbart said: using bipolar matrix questions (those defined by subquestion text "not at all | very much"), it is not.
In this case I wouldn't use the pipe symbol, but have these option in the header of the matrix.

I use LimeSurvey Version 3.14 now. Last year when I used LimeSurvey in Version 2.6+ there was this "show 'no answer'" button in the presentation and navigation tab of the general settings, which can be deactivated.
However, in Version 3.14 some things changed. I can't find a way to disable the "no answer" option for not mandatory questions (in my case for the questions List (Radio) and Yes/No). Is there any way to do that?
