Hi all!

Before saying it is a bug, I want to know if I do the right thing: I want to display several texts between the questions, e.g.:
- Section A (with some general text)
-- Text A1 (regarding questions A2 and A3)
-- Question A2
-- Question A3
-- Text A4 (regarding questions A5 and A6)
-- Question A5
-- Question A6
etc.

Using the online form, no problem: the text is displayed between other questions. But when I export in PDF format, it becomes displayed like this:
- Section A, with some general text, and with text A1, and with text A4 (without any line break!)
-- Question A2
-- Question A3
-- Question A5
-- Question A6

Maybe this concerns queXML export more than LimeSurvey, but I saw that the order in the XML structure (produced by LimeSurvey) is wrong. I attach the LSS file with the correct order of questions and displays. ZIP file with the XML structure and PDF produced exceeds the limit.

Does anyone have experienced this? Found a way to display text correctly in the PDF version? I haven't found a bug report about it, sorry if there is one already.

Thanks!

We have exactly the same problem. Did you find any solution or a workaround for this?

No, I haven't. It's been quite a while, but I think my collegues changed the PDF manually before printing. The survey is now closed and I haven't produced another questionnaire since then.

Thank you for your quick response. I will look for some workaround about that. It's very annoying :( Manually changing the PDF is not a choice in our case.

If you think it is a bug, you need to make a bug report. A bug not reported is a bug not fixed.

I'm not a LimeSurvey GmbH member. I answer at the LimeSurvey forum in my spare time. No support via private message.
