    Please take a look at my form under the Phone Number field. I've pre-poppulated it with a + but also have a hint sample on which now as dissappeared, any ideas how to fix this?

    It has the + sign and the hint is also there;


    Can you try clearing your browsers cache? See if it helps.

    I'm not talking about the Hover Text but the Hint Sample that's within the field itself.

    Cache & history clean.
    Tried in Firefox, Safari on mac and Chrome on Ipad.
    If you delete the '+' suddenly the hint sample shows up...
    It's a bit like pre-populating overwrites the hint or suppresses it.

    We are sorry for possible misunderstanding.

    This is not a bug, but this is how it works. You can not use the Default Value and the Hint Example text at the same time. The field value is designed to override any hints.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
