    Hi there,

    I have successfully changed the Inkject Custom CSS of my form earlier today. When I have tried to change it again, the field seems to be "stuck". And I cannot edit the field anymore.

    Please see attached screen shot.

    Can you please help?

    Hello Henry,

    When you say "stuck", do you mean you could not change the values of the CSS injection?

    If so, you will need to click the value properly once so that it can change into a small text area.  You will notice the font change once it is editable.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Liyam,

    That's exactly my problem. When I click on the value area (as indicated with the red arrow) it doesn't change to the editable text. It just stays as it is i.e. becomes stuck... sort of un-clickable...

    any ideas?

    Hey Henry,

    I've tried accessing your account and that particular form in question and I had no problems whatsoever in editint the inject custom css field.

    Have you tried changing browsers? I can't really say that it is javascript that's causing the problem because I also did try disabling javascript but I was still able to edit the field.

    You may also delete your browser's cache (press shift-ctrl-delete keys at the same time) and see if it helps. Get back to us if problem still persists.

    I had the same problem.  I was beginning to think that "inject" was like an injection that can't be taken out!  I could change any of the other fields on that preferences screen but not inject css.  Clearing the cache, closing the page didn't help. 

    The solution in my case was to turn on compatibility view (Alt (if your menu isn't on) - Tools - Compatibility view).  Now it works.  I'm using IE 9 ver 9.0.8112.16421.

    Thank you for sharing your insights in this issue. The original poster was indeed using IE9 as well when this happened. If he could read this, I'm pretty sure he'd be thankful as well. We at Jotform Support Team appreciate your efforts.
