    I have a form that has 14 diifernt questions on it.  When I click preview it only shows 4 of the questions?  Also when I click preview...and I put in a answer for my first questions ....all the questions are displayed on top of each other and I'm unable to read it.

     

    I must be doing something wrong.  Any help out there?  Thanks.

    Hi Neil,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We were able to confirm the issue you described when opening your form using Safari and Google Chrome. However it displays properly when using IE 8 and Firefox 3. I shall have our developer investigate the cause of this bug and we'll update you as soon as possible.

    Can you delete all of the conditions and see if that solves the problem? This might be caused by conflicting conditions.

    I did change the conditions and that did help with seeing all of the questions... But I still have an issue with the forms overlapping when I go from "purchase" to "refinance" in question number one.  This does seem to be a google chrome issue and not a IE issue.  Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi there,

    First of all, thank you for using JotForm!

    I’ve looked into what might be causing the overlap. I’ve noticed that you used “hide” instead of “show” on most of your conditions. So, by default if a certain field is not equal to a value then a form element is shown. Programmatically, the best practice would be to hide all elements not needed until a condition is met instead of showing everything then hiding them one by one.

    Hope this helps!

    Sorry I am just entirely confused now, but I do appreciate your help.   I did have a set of rules that did work just fine in Internet Explorer but didnt work in Google Chrome...so I must be doing something right.  I am going to show you my elements and see if you have a solution for what I'm going for.

    show:

    Your current loan product

    Current Interest Rate

    Occupancy Type

    Property Type

    Property Value

    Phone number 

    Address

    What you hope to accomplish....

    submit button

    hide:

    Down Payment

     

    If "purpose of your loan" = purchase

    show:

    Hi,

    I found this piece of css code that makes your form look weird - scrollbars and all.

     

    I cloned your form and deleted that piece of code and it made everything look fine. I then added the conditions that you wanted, except for the condition, if purpose of your loan = empty.

    Feel free to clone it for your own use. You only need to add the condition statements for "Empty Purpose of Loan" to make it work the way you want it to.

    Cloned Form

    Hope you find this information helpful. Thank you for using Jotform.

     

    Regards,

    Neil

    Thanks for your help Neil.  However when I click on your cloned form and I select refinance its still overlaps at the top and makes the form unreadable.  It seems to only occur when I use Chrome, with Internet Explorer the form works great!  It's just the text box at the bottom of my form for some reason jumps on top of the first question...anybody else have an idea?

     

    Thanks for trying though

    Hi,

    I was able to make your form run smoothly on Chrome now, but I have sacrificed the form fields arrangement. Check this Sample Form out.

    Please use the exact arrangement in there, starting from "Address" to "Phone Number". I've tried other arrangements but they failed me.
