    When I hit Clear button it removes even the hint text

    Asked by ugpti on September 06, 2013 at 09:43 AM

    When the clear form button is clicked, is there a way to get the Hint Text to repopulate? It currently removes everything.

    Thanks for contacting us.

    Let me inform you that's the way the clear button works. However if you want to prevent this to happen you should consider to use Sub Label as you've done in another of your text areas: 


    Your form will be like this one: https://www.jotform.com/form/32484272866968

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    It sounds like we're actually going to remove the Clear Form button since it will probably cause more problems than it solves. Thanks
