    Where does the text added to an image box show up?

    Asked by capconnect on April 13, 2017 at 10:33 AM



    Have 2 questions

    1) when adding images there is an option in advanced to add a text to an image. I have done this but where does the text show?

     2) how can I increase the width of a text or image box?

    There are two text boxes under the Advanced tab, one is for Alternative text, a text that will be displayed if the image is not available for any reason. Another text box is Hover text, a text that will be displayed when you hover over the image:

    Regarding the width of the image field or text field, you can do that under field option:

    For image field:

    And for text field:

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!

    Thank you !
    I have another query for the same file.
    Under question “ I will be available from” there is the option “other”. If this is ticked, then I’d like a text box to open up. How can I do this?
