Hello demedia,
This should already be fixed in recent versions.
Can you please check if this issue still exists in the latest version of LimeSurvey and let us know?
Thank you!

Hi there,

I can confirm that the issue is still existing using the latest stable Limesurvey release (3.27.13+210823) but I haven`t checked version 5.x yet

@demedia I check with version 5.1.8 and it works as expected. Can you confirm that?
If not can you please attach a 2-question sample survey and the faulty PDF`?

My recent experience with LimeSurvey Cloud, Version 3.27.16, has been that "Text display" type questions do show up in queXML PDF export, but all questions of this type are being moved to the beginning of the question group they appear in, more precisely: into the box that starts with "Part X: [title of question group]".
