    Dashes are replacing text box titles / How to get blank titles

    Asked by wootabeger on December 24, 2012 at 04:19 PM

    I had completed a form Friday and I thought what I fixed was perminent.  But some reason, these "Dashes" or hypens are still appearing?

    I am using Windows 7 and on IE 9, and the latest Chrome and Firefox, there are dashes where there use to be a title to the text box on the right.  I removed the title because I want it blank.  But the dashes seem to reappear.  Can you tell me why?

    Again, all I did was remove the text and saved the form and then placed the embedded code into my website.

    Thanks for any help.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The dashes are being added by our Form Builder, this is a normal behavior for our Form Builder.

    If you would like to use blank titles, you may add the following codes to them:


    That code is an equivalent to the space symbol, so you will get the blank title.

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