    Buggy formatting in Default Value in Text Area

    Asked by sierraskininstitute on February 05, 2014 at 06:50 PM

    No matter what kind of formatting removal I do to the content in the Default for the text area, extra spacing is added into the final version.


    Any ideas?

    Hi Kara,

    Are you trying to add a read-only text like instructions or agreements in your form?

    The more suitable field to use is the TEXT field foun in Form Tools.

    The TextArea field is not meant to use this way. 

    Please refer to this guide -Creating-a-Non-editable-Text-Area-Terms-of-Use-Etc-

    Inform us if you need further assistance.
