I know an option should be available for a certain question, such as putting a text box at the bottom of a list for an "other: please specify", but I can't see how to do it when I’m adding a question. Where do I find it?
For most of the kinds of questions in Baseline, additional options, such as adding a different answer type, are only available after creating the question, in the question editing screens. First create the question, then edit it to find the additional options. For example, the options to shuffle answers, add/remove/specify the requirement to answer, and all reporting and display logic, are only available in the Edit Question screens. The options to display an answer on the survey, include a textbox, pre-select an answer, or add default text are only available in the Edit Answer screens.
