Peculiar problem with Form XLS

1. What is the issue? Please be detailed.

I have created an XLS form and trying to import it into ODK Central.
I want a front page of the form with some branding of project.
I have added a note and image as advised by the online forum.

But if I have this block, the choices of the following blocks do not show.

2. What steps can we take to reproduce this issue?

Please try the attached sample form

3. What have you tried to fix the issue?

If I remove the the note with images it works...

4. Upload any forms or screenshots you can share publicly below.

This is related to form language.

All columns representing user-facing text or media can be multi-lingual:

If you replace label::English (en) on your choices sheet with label, the form will work. (But this will also break any custom required_message::English (en) values (none in the example)

OR, if you change the image column title on the survey sheet to image::English (en), the form will also work, and so will the required_message

Thanks for the suggestion.

Removing the label::English (en) in the choices sheet to `label' worked.


Changing the image column title on the survey sheet to image::English (en) did not work. It through a validation error.

Error: ODK Validate Errors:
>> XForm is invalid. See above for the errors.
: Question <label> '${buzaaya_1}:label': text is not localizable for default locale [English (en)]!

The following files failed validation:

Result: Invalid

Removing the language in label is non-intuitive. Thanks for your help.

in 2023.3.1 it uploaded without validation error, and worked in Enketo & Collect
