    Hi there

    I refer to the following URL.

    Based on your navigation, 

    1. Click the "Preview" button.

    2. Click the "OPEN IN NEW TAB" button.

    3. Right click on the live form then click "View Page Source" or "Inspect"

    I have been trying to use, though, I have the following question.

    Let me assume that any form is applied as far as the example of the above 1-3.are concerned.

    Compared your explanation with my trial form, Competition Entry Form


    2.How can I reach to "OPEN IN NEW TAB" button in my trial form?

    3.How can I reach to  "View Page Source" or "Inspect" in my trial form?

    I will wait for your clarification.
