More than one question per page
The interviewing program normally displays each question on a separate page. The exceptions are loops that contain more than one question, where the interviewing program starts a new page for each repetition of the loop rather than for each question in the loop (see Asking repeated questions for details.)
When questions are short and closely related, you might want to display them all on one page. The interviewing program displays the questions one below the other, but you can change this. For example, with four questions, you might display the first two questions side by side with the third and fourth questions side by side beneath them.
This section introduces the following keywords for the metadata section:
Define a group of questions to be displayed on a single page
Print categorical items that use the same category list side by side
List the names of questions to be displayed on the same page.
page and block generate identical page layouts during interviews, but this might change in future versions. If you are writing an interview script that you might want to use in the future, we recommend using page when the requirement is to display multiple questions on a page, and block when the requirement is to keep the questions together for sorting or analysis purposes.
Displaying a list of questions on the same page
Question blocks: A block of related questions that will be displayed on the same page.
Printing categorical items side by side
