Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
This doesn't allow enough expresiveness to introduce reporters to nuanced questions or situations. Sometimes this context is key to ensure more accurate responses to the survey as a whole.
Describe the solution you'd like
This new type of survey field, let's call it provisionally "help text", would be presented at report time and not require response from reporters. It would be there just to be displayed inline in the survey. It should allow lengthy text and support rich formatting (and presentation of links).
Describe alternatives you've considered
The comment from the slack thread relevant to this issue is:
If we were going to do #3794 I would want to have this designed/built as a larger (i hate to use this word) re-design or deeper look at the flow of survey creation/build.
#3794 (Allow inserting blocks of content at arbitrary points in the form) actually would be harder to 'understand' from a user perspective without a lot of tutorial/onboarding. The adding of the arbitrary points in the form with the tutorial/learning would have to live in the 'edit field' section (below) which is...an odd place to put such flexibility and I'm not sure how useful that would be for more users.
