    Hi there,

    It seems Free Text HTML element is not supported as of the moment. Let me clarify this to our developers so they can review and check what might be the real cause. I am able to reproduced the problem FYI.

    hi westonanowling, I cloned your form and tested. It works properly. Maybe you forgot to save it. 


    And this is your form. It works properly too. Please look at the pictures.
