    bulleted list in free text area not working

    Asked by cshull on June 27, 2013 at 11:27 AM

    Here is the code I added in a free text area on my form:


    <li>A  diagnosis of my condition requiring this procedure</li>

    <li>The nature and purpose of the procedure</li>

    <li>The material risks of the procedure</li>

    <li>The likelihood of success of the procedure</li>

    <li>The practical alternatives to the procedure</li>


    It is not giving me any bullets on my list.  The bullets show in the HTML but not in the published list. Please help.  thanks.

    I have just tested the code that you have provided on the Free Text (HTML) field and it appears to be working fine. However, the bullets does not appear when you are still in the form editor, you can only see them on preview mode or if you will embed your form. 

    Please see test here: http://form.jotform.co/form/31714785561863

    Thank you.

    Your form seems to be working on my end also and I can see the bullets on your form.

    If you need further assistance, do let us know.

    Thank you!

    thanks.  I didn't realize the bullets wouldn't show in the editor.
