Setting conditions possible bug?

5 years 6 months ago #64978 by chrisedebo
Hi Guys,

Been having trouble all morning with some conditions in a survey. I've narrowed it down to what appears to be a bug, but I wanted someone else to confirm it before I post it in the bug tracker.

Similar to this bug [url=http://][/url] I believe I have discovered that if you have an array type question and use ' in one of the answers (eg Don't Know) you are not able to set conditions to any questions after it. The predefined responses do not appear in the conditions screen. Just to be sure I was not experiencing the same issues as the above bug, I exported the question and analysed the xml in notepad++. I could not find any erroneous characters. I recreated the question and entered all the text manually instead of copying and pasting from a document. By a process of elimination, I narrowed it down to the ' char. I managed to get round the issue by using ` instead.

Can anyone confirm this is an issue?

This is only a problem in the answers, not the sub questions. Also, in a single choice question the answers can contain '

Maybe the best is to make a full bug reporting :).

I think you have some interesting information to put on the bug report ( and send a survey export example)
