    I am looking to add help text to different fields on the from. For example, you could perhaps have an 'i' icon to the right of the field and when you mouseover or touch on a mobile, you get a tooltip with some help text. Does anything like this exist? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Paultanswell,

    In the Form Builder, open the Multiple Choice field properties and go to the Advanced tab. Update the Hover Text option to your own preferences.

    Thanks very much for the answer. It is better than nothing but it doesn't work on all controls on mobile (e.g. single choice) as there is no way of triggering the tooltip. I think it would be better if you could specify an icon that actually gave the user a clue that they could see a help text by clicking an information icon.

    As a user, one is unfortunately rarely completely satisfied! ;) Thanks again.
