    My placeholder text is in the proper position inside the form fields but when I type in text it is the wrong color/style and to the LEFT of the placeholder text. Attaching a screenshot. Thanks!

    Please try to remove the extra space in the Short Text Entry field properties. 


    After that, add this custom CSS code to match the form text to the placeholder. 

    .form-textbox, .form-textarea {

        padding: 4px 0px 2px 10px !important;


    Here's a guide on how to add custom CSS code to your form:

    Thank you, this has resolved my issues! I have a couple more to send over before the forms are ready to go live, I will create another ticket.
