    Hi folks,

    I've been unable to remove the text in one of form fields in a form that I just created.

    in the 4th text box down, there is text 'Enter your state here'.  I did not put that there and have been unable to remove it.
    I've deleted the field and recreated it.  I've copied another field and changed the heading.  I do not see any option in the 'Properties' where this is shown to delete it.  Nothing I've found seems to work for removing that text from the final 'Preview' of the form.

    Any ideas why this is occuring and what I can do to remove it?

    I appreciate your assistance with this issue.

    Regards,
    Chuck Putnam

    PS: I LOVE JotForm!

    Hi Chuck,

    Thanks for the love! Jotform definitely loves you back! :)

    By the way, I just checked the form on your page, and I can no longer see the mentioned text on that text area field. I guess this is already resolved. Can you please verify that on your end? Clear your browsers cache and cookies then recheck.

    Cheers!

    Hello

    Please select your text box and edit/erase the "Hint example" content.
