    You can use the Free Text (HTML tool) to insert a page indicator in between the page breaks, such as in this sample form.

     

    The Free Text tool can be found under the Power Tools section:

     

    It is also possible to use custom images to mimic a progress bar for your form.

    Should you need further help with these matter, please do let us know.

    @mbakhtiar

    You should start a separate thread for your question.

    Unfortunately, I don't see any better option to show page numbers in your form. Apart from the Free Text (HTML), only option I can possibly think is to show the page numbers in your "Back" and "Next" button of your page break.

     

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Sidharth

    FWIW, there is now a widget available that does this automatically. Go to "Widgets" and search for "progress". It's called (drumroll) "Progress Bar"

    @Capitalresorts,

    Thank you for sharing the information about the Progress Bar widget. Also, there is a Form Tabs widget that might be useful on some multi-page forms.

    Dig both, but wish they were compatible! Tried using both and the progress bar only stays at the top and does not sit well with the tabs... hmmm.

    Kindly ensure you add the progress bar widget above the tabs widget.

    You can also use CSS to position the progress bar, please let us know if you need additional assistance.
