    I am not sure if I have understood your question.

    Do you want to show some content in textarea as watermark? If yes, you can do so by setting the "Hint example" property of your textarea field.

    Please select the textarea field on your form, click the "Hint Example" button in the toolbar, add the text, then click OK.

    Let us know if you meant to ask something else.
