Categorization of question types

Sometimes I get a question about how to add file upload for a survey.

I think that "Mask question" is not good. Could we 1) add new category "Pseudo questions", 2) move Equation and Text display to it, 3) Rename Mask question to Other question types", and 4) move Multiple numerical input to Arrays-category?

And when we are on it, change the order of categories so that Multiple choise questions would be after Single choise questions, Arrays after then.

Last, to native English speakers: Why we have Language switch but Numerical Input, why this kind of uppercasing?

(I can make a bug report, but I want first to see if others are against this.)

Note: If I asked something and forgot to say version, I am using LS 5.x.

Review all Question categories seesm to be a good idea ! Right totally right !

4 : Multiple numerical input to array ? No , think «Multiple numerical input» «Multiple text» «Multiple with comment» are near each other.

Another thing : QuestionTheme can update the category too ?

(+1 for the little issue about uppercase)

I agree that the categorization of the question types is really not ideal. Also, "hiding" certain "question types" in settings of other questions is also not a good practice, because people usually won't search for this "type of question" in another question type.

But these are all things that grew historically and were never really tackled strategically or from a usability point of view. Unfortunately the interface is usually done by developers, which often actually do not even really use Limesurvey for projects.
