    Hi TitusN!

    I tried your suggestion on cloning the form. And when I previewed it, I saw the changes I made. I wonder why it didn't happen on my original form? But anyway, thank you so much for the help again!

    Hi Jamie,

    Usually, that was a form caching issue. However, there are no changes after I cleared your forms cache: How to Clear your Form Cache so that must be something that only our developers can check. We'll update you here for our progress.

    This problem should be permanently fixed now as bugs are constantly being fixed in the time in-between. Please let us know if otherwise.

    Apologies for the delayed reply.
