    Hi dear team,

    I'm testing JotForm.

    Looks like "Please select" text can't be modifed.

    I get this "Please select" in english, even if this is displayed in french in the editor.

    Thanks for you help.

    Hello @nospamraffi,

    Thank you for contacting Jotform Support.

    Please note that if you want to insert different text into the empty value of the Dropdown field, you can use the "Show Text In Empty Options" setting to enter custom text for the "empty option"

    Here is a screen shot of this on your form and I wrote "testing"

    To access this setting you can click on the "gear: icon on the dropdown field > Click the "Options" tab > Scroll down and Toggle the setting to "ON"

    Hi Felipe !

    Huge thanks for your answer.

    Doesn't seem to work from my end :(

    Can this be due to fact that my jotform is in french ?

    Also, a another question if you don't mind.

    Can this text be changed into french ?

    As we check your Jotform, it is already displaying with the changed text.
