    I would like to put Uneditable Text Area on my Form

    Asked by gwlim on July 03, 2013 at 11:23 PM

     For example, if I would like to type an introductory paragraph below the heading, how would I go about doing that?

    There is a sub-heading on the heading field where you can put text in there.

    Also a text area where you can configure under its properties to be Read Only field.

    I have created a form so that you can see what I am pertaining to. 


    If this is what you wanted, feel free to let us know so that I can walk you through the process.

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    I didn't know we could set the field as read only.

    Another possible way to add non-editable text area in your form is by using Freee Text HTML(field). For more information, please take a look at this article: http://www.jotform.me/help/154-Creating-a-Non-editable-Text-Area-Terms-of-Use-Etc-
