    Please make the menu at the top of the page stay on the screen while I scroll down a forum thread or form

    Asked by NRCsupport on March 05, 2014 at 06:16 PM

    It would be helpful if the top of screen menu (My Forms, Form Templates, etc) did not scroll off the screen as one scrolls through the edit screen or messages such as the forum.You do stop the editor screen menu from scrolling out of the window - so it can be done.

    I find that I need to switch between My Forms and Support frequently, and it is annoying to have to scroll back to the top in order to access the buttons.

    Also, in form editing, the panels which open up, such as the list of conditions, should be draggable up and down, independently without having to scroll the underlying form. I find that to close my lengthy list of conditions, I have to scroll the entire form to get to the button at the bottom of the panel. Then I have to scroll all the way back to find the next panel to close.

    One further annoyance is that in the editor window the very top of the form is hidden by the menu.

    This sort of feedback from our users is very helpful. I guess we on this end have become so immersed in the JotForm enviroment, so to speak, that we tend to miss the obvious. Of course it would be better to have the menu at the top stay on screen as we scroll. Why didn't we think of that?? Ha ha. (I'm not one of the front end developers but it seems like it would be a simple matter of applying position: fixed to that element. I guess that's how it's done with the form builder menu.)

    Anyway, I have submitted a ticket requesting that functionality. (I'll post separate tickets on your other suggestions.)


    Thanks

    Actually John, could you please post separate threads on the other two issues you mentioned? (I know that that request in itself is a bit of an annoyance but we are able to better deal with issues when they each have their own thread.)


    Thanks

    Thanks, OK, I'll create two more threads.
