    I would like the text areas are with wysiwyg editor in the same way that this form, where I'm writing this, just let me know that by now I'd like to give him format customers and visitors to fill out the form.

    Also report that by adding buttons "Next" and "Back" form is automatically sent, this only with the "source code" of the form. Thanks and I hope your answer

    Hi There,

    Thank you for choosing JotForm!

    Unfortunately, wysiwyg text areas are not available in JotForm. I will forward this to our development team and hopefully we can integrate it in the future.

    As for your second question, I’m not quite sure what you meant. I’ll assume that you are pertaining to the “Page Break” feature.


    Clicking on “Next” or “Back” temporarily saves the information in memory. Information is sent only after clicking on the submit button at the end.

    Hope this answers you questions.

    We have released Rich "WYSIWYG" Editor for text-area field. You can enable it under Text area field's properties toolbar or Text Area field's Properties.

    Kindest Regards,

    Excellent news! but apparently does not work, activated it in a form that I have inserted into a website and nothing is displayed, the box does not show to write, just a gray (for the theme chosen) instead of the text box.

    Actually it works on my end, of course, I used a form with no background
