    Thanks for contacting us Burak.

    Fixing your form can be accomplish by applying some CSS code. I can see that you already have injected CSS to your form, so, fixing your form could take some time as I need to check your current code and it may require to edit it. So, I will work on your form and will get back to you asap once I get fixed.

    Kindly open a new thread to make unrelated questions.

    Thanks

    @buraksusann 

    I have fixed the movement problem of your fields by moving the shrunken fields down to a new line.

    The remaining slight movement now is due to your red field border on error mode. Just adjust its thickness to prevent that. It's on this line:

    .form-validation-error {

    border: 5px solid red !important;

    }

    Regarding on the textarea hint issue, I will forward this to our developers for further investigation. We will update you here once this is fixed. Thanks!

    Thanks, this suggestions works for displacement. Slight movements are not major issue. I would be glad if textarea hint issue has a solution as well. Thanks again.

    Hello-

    I just rested this and it appears to be fixed. I used test form:

    http://form.jotform.co/form/33141312679855

    When I press submit the hint text disappears but the submit is returned with an error, as expected:

    Please let us know if you have any questions, or still experience the issue.

    Thanks
