    It would be great to have an input menu on text zones like in the Thank-you page, to have this available to all users easily.

    Sorry for the "anglais de cuisine" french expression untranslatable that wants to mean that I speak English like I cook, will only what I find in the fridge.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I'm not sure if you already know that you can use field names in the Thank You page. You may also use the "Form Fields" drop down to capture the field name automatically. 

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    This I know I wanted to mean that you could add the form field wizard in the textfield editor, like it is on the thankyou page, this would be more simple for regular users to get the field contents like I did in my demo file (idea to pass to developers.

    I have sent a feature request to our back-end team to have the "Form Fields" drop down in the Text field:

    If this gets implemented, you will be notified via this thread. Open a new thread if you need anything else, we will be glad to assist you.
