    How can I stop Hover Text getting in the way of the cursor?

    Asked by AGSD-UK on November 22, 2013 at 04:16 AM

    Hover text is very useful to remove clutter from the form, but it stops the cursor selecting some options on the form.

    Hi,

    Can you please tell us which hover text  is blocking a field in your form http://www.jotform.com/33147013204338

    As I observed this form so far, none of the hover text is causing hindrance in answering the questions in the form.

    The hover text can reposition using injected CSS codes in the form.  A similar discussion can be reviewed on this thread.

    I did take some advice from the forum to modify the CSS to move the comment
    over a bit. But it still gets in the way of the "Number of riders" field on
    occasions (seems to depend how the cursor approaches the field.

    Thanks for contacting us.

    I checked your form and this is what I got when hovering the Number of riders field:

    So, if you need the Hover text to be more away from the field, please use this code: 

    #id_48 .form-description
    {
    right: -150px !important;
    }

    So, it will look at this way:
     

    I hope that helps. Please let us know if you still need assistance with this or kindly open a new thread to post unrelated inquiries.

    Thanks
