    Field variable insertion in calculation widget not placed correctly.

    Asked by NRCsupport on March 10, 2014 at 05:34 PM

    I am trying to use the calculation widget to build a string http://submit.jotform.com/form.php?formID={contentsof field 1}&sid={contents of field 2}&mode=edit.

    So I type in the text up to the first =, select "add field" and choose the field to add. Then type in up to the next = and select "add field" again and choose the field. Instead of inserting the field at the current cursor point, it is inserted just after the previous &. I did eventually persuade it to go in the right place - but don't actually remember what I had to do to get there.
