    I am able to see what you meant. In your form https://www.jotform.com/12551839919 when you first navigate to the next page the *Required fields property are immediately triggered even when nothing is being done yet on that page


    I found out that the problem is being triggered by the Gift Registry widget on the form and when the page break field is used.

    I made a test form and was able to reproduce the issue with Gift Registry widget in the form. BUT when I removed the Gift Registry widget the form now behaves properly. This is the test form you can test also http://form.jotform.me/form/41212032880442?

    I will submit a bug ticket to our dev support so that they take a look on this and possibly fixed it the soonest.

    For the meantime, to make the *Required field alert less glaring on your form, we can use injected CSS code to make the alert notice less imposing as much as possible.

    This CSS code should help.

    .form-input .form-error-message, .form-input-wide .form-error-message {

    display: none !important;


    .form-line-error {

        background: transparent;
