I am running into a strange issue that has suddenly popped up.

 

On a multiple choice question, fashioned as a dropdown box, i have added the option of allowing an 'Other' free text option.

For some reason suddenly you cannot enter a number in this free text field. There are no restrictions on the question that i have set.

For example if i type 12345 it won't allow it. But if you start with not a number e.g. A123, or -123, it will allow it.

 

Does anyone know how to fix this?

@atrayn Same problem for me.  Absolutely floored that this bug exists.
