    Preserve Inline HTML/CSS

    Asked by earthdaysf on April 13, 2013 at 12:55 AM

    JotForm allows html in headers and checkbox options, which is great. The html is correctly rendered, which is great. 

    Example, i can enter ul, li, b, a, and other tags into the checkbox option text. 


    Problem: the control forgets the html if you edit it. 

    Request, remember inline html/css in header, checkbox-opton, and similar controls. 

    (PS, plz give us a bigger editing area.)

    See pics.

    The option to preserve your codes is actually present, you will just need to use the "Options" button from the toolbar instead of the field itself;

    The "Options" button will also give you a bigger editing area.

    This funcationality seems to be missing from Header control. 

    SubHeader has it, but not Header.

    Are you still referring on adding HTML Codes to the Labels or Options? With regards to the header, how about using our Free Text HTML Field?

    With this field, you can always customize your Text as Headers.

    True, the HTML widget can be anything!

    But we like pre-formatted :)
