    Hi GoWallpaper

    Thanks for asking but I'm not sure what is meant by a "blank field". Having looked at the forms in your account, I notice that in each instance the "Full Name" field was just a regular text box. However, our product has a pre-formatted field for just such a purpose in the "Quick Tools" menu: Load the form in question into the form builder and in the Quick Tools menu on the left, click "Full Name". As you will see, it comes with ready made sub-labels and can be customized in various ways: Prefix, Middle Name, Suffix. If you want to hide its label (Full Name) that can be done using injected CSS. You would need to use a tool like Firebug to determine the correct ID to target.

    As to a copy of your form, please see How to Clone an Existing Form in our user guide.

    If you require additional assistance on these matters, please be sure to let us know. Our team is always willing to assist our users however best we can.
