    Hi Tim

    Have you abandoned the idea of using form collapse fields because of this apparent fault? (I notice that those fields are no longer on your form.) Well, after searching the forum a bit, I believe I have stumbled upon a solution to your problem in this thread.

    Perhaps we need to update our user guide with this information. I would be willing to do so but there is a bit of a glitch where I am presently unable to update it.

    Incidentally, you may have noticed that when using form collapse fields, the page jumps to the field that opens when clicked. If you want to prevent that, append ?nojump to the URL. Please see this thread on the issue.

    Hi again Tim

    After my last response I came across a thread about a bug associated with form collapse fields that is currently being dealt with by the developers. I was hoping that your form(s) would not be affected by this issue but alas! that appears not to be the case.

    Our apologies for the inconvenience.

    Of course, The link to the form is http://form.jotform.com/form/11022350215,
    I will be taking of the collapse off untill a fix because I need to to try
    and finish this project for my client in the next 3 weeks. If you have a
    work around for me that would be great! I know he really liked the collapse
    part of the form! I was saying to the other nice man on the forum (abajan)
    that I think this product is bloody amazing!!!!!. And your customer service
    is 100 stars the best I have dealt with in all my time of making web sites.
