    Can you add a close window button or back button

    Asked by bluknight12 on June 25, 2012 at 10:48 AM

    when making a form can you add addtional buttons to the form outside of what is provided, ie., a close window button or a back button, in case the user doesn't want to fill out the form and have them return to the home page ?

    Yes, this is can be done. Here's what to do for the Back button:

    1. Copy this code to your clipboard

    2. Insert a free text element and then (while the element is still selected) click the HTML toolbar button

    3. Paste the code that was copied in step 1

    4. Click OK and save the form

    I'll have to search for one that closes the window without triggering pop-up warning.
