    Is there a tutorial somewhere I can review that explains the difference between the Form Tools, "Text", "Text Box" and "Text Area" and the appropriate application of each? Thanks,

    Ok, here it is a picture showing the 3 of them on edit mode. Please find below the explanation.

    This is the form I've used to show these fields 

     

    1.  Text :   This is used for non-editable text. It comes with a toolbar so you can customize it such as changing font size, font color or embedding a link.

    However, you input HTML code order to get a more customized field.

     

    2. Text Box: This is for your user to input text. You can define the number of characters.

     

    3. Text Area: This is a memo type field. You can use it for comments so people will have plenty for of room, with out a limit restriction.

    1. You can define the number of columns and rows to determine the size of the box.

    2. You can also choose the editor mode:  Plain, Text or Fullscreen mode.

    3. You can also define the dimension of the box by dragging and dropping the bottom right corner.

     

    I hope this explanation helps.
