    I created a text box and copied and pasted a large amount of text into it. How can I enable the plain text editor to format?

    My understanding is that you want to edit the format and content of a Text field. Here's how:

    1. Select the "Text" field and then click the "Edit HTML" button.

    2. The text editor will appear where you can customize the content of the text field. When you're done, click the "Complete" button.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    Thank you. For some reason the text editor was not appearing for me. Will try again tonight.

    If you are using the Form Builder V4, you can select the field and then click the "Edit Text" button.

    The text editor will appear where you can customize the contents.

    If you're still having issues, please provide a screenshot so that we can further investigate.
