    Form Builder not working in Chrome browser.

    Asked by MediMariNYC on January 23, 2017 at 09:18 PM


    While working in Firefox, no problems.

    While attempting to work in Chrome:

    - drag & drop does't work at all

    - cannot edit options (e.g., field size, required, etc.)

    - changes do not save, but elements added to form stay. These elements cannot be moved at all!

    Help, please, thank you!

    You rock! Thank you! That is the solution!

    Perhaps it would save MUCH time for all involved if there was a little notification -- e.g., "Using Chrome Browser?" on the Jotform home page to offer this fix and any other suggestions for improved use with Chrome...

    There is NO way I would have known about these "experimental flags" had you not responded to my query.

    Thank you, again!

    You are welcome! Unfortunately, this is a common issue in Chrome browser with touch screen laptops. If the touch events are enable, you need to move the elements by touching the screen, if you want to do it with the mouse, then it is needed to disable the touch events. 

    Open a new thread if you need anything else, we will be glad to assist you.
