Reset response ID after copying a survey

Hello,

I create a copy of survey by exporting survey structure (.lss) and then import it as a new survey. The original survey was executed and has some number of responses. The problem is that the first response ID in the new survey does not start with 1. The IDs continues so the first response ID in the new survey is e.g. 89. Can I reset it to start with 1? LS 3.16.1.

Cheers

OK, I edited .lss file and changed the filed <autonumber_start> from CDATA[89] to CDATA[1] (in xml editor), however, I'm not sure if this is OK and if this is the only place to correct. At first glance this seems to work.

I look at an lss yesterday , don't find this …
It can be interseting to allow it to reset in GUI.

Same when import table from previous response : this update the number even if i want to be the same.

Let's make 2 feature request.

(else : i think it's OK, no need another update, mauybe 0 ? or not set ?).
