    Sub-head word counter for field limit does not show on some of the large text fields.

    Asked by markmobs on June 12, 2017 at 12:31 AM

    I enlarged the large text field in both columns and rows, after which only two of 8 or 9 large text fields would show the sub-head word counter when the field limit is set.

    I have replaced the fields and undone/redone the settings without the sub-head word counter showing...except on two of the fields.

    Are you referring to this form?


    I tried to add more than 30 characters, and there was not even a message to show the word counter on any of those fields.

    Can you provide me the steps to replicate the issue? So that I'll be able to advise you accordingly?

    Hi there,

    Please add this custom CSS so that the sub-label of other Long Text Entry on your form will be visible:






    span#input_48-limit {

        font-size: 14px;

        color: #ffffff;
