    Are you referring to the Free Text (HTML) tool?


    This tool causes quite some confusion amongst our users. The truth is that this tool allows the form owner to insert custom html tags inside the form itself for the end users to see.

    That means you can add your own images, divisions, tables and other html elements that you want to insert on your form for further customization options.

    It does not display an html editor wherein the end-user can add custom html in their submitted entry. We don't have that feature yet, and I'm not sure if we would even allow that.

    Let me know if this post doesn't answer your question, or if I misunderstood your question. I am looking forward to your response. Thank you.

    Is it possible to implement a text box that includes an HTML editor (shown to end-user) yet? This is very important and would could look like the HTML edior in which I am writing now.

    Best regards,

    As said by Neil, we do not have that kind of feature, where the end-user can add custom html in their submitted entry in an html editor .

    Thank you.
