Hello  Torsten & Jens,
 Thanks for the beta version release in this month.I have some few
submission for the new epi data entry software.
1. Currently it is difficult to have the variable name appear on the screen
as compared to old version EpiData. where for instance want to design a
screen like:
                                                  Qid       Questionnaire ID
                                                  Q1       Gender of
respondent.

With this current one, the variable name does not appear only the variable
label. Is it possible to include check box in the basic menu to include the
variable name, instead of the current form.

2. Is it possible to have a function to make a screen design in a roster
format, so that if you are capturing data for household you can design the
screen as you see it.
eg.                                   Name   Age    Sex.
Household member 1
                             2
                            3
                           4
                            .
                            .
                          10.

With this function, it will make capturing data in table format easy.


Hoping to read from you soon, as we test the beta version  V1.1.1.


Regards,
Sedzro
