    That is not what I mean. What I'm asking is if there is a setting so that when users select a field to type in the default text disappears on click. Like any other professional form would have :)

    Hi Kevin,

    I believe that what you're asking about is a watermark  or a hint example as how we call it in JotForm.

    To add one to your text box or text area:

    1.  While editing the form, click on your form field
    2.  Click the Hint Example button in the toolbar

    3.  Type in what you want to display as hint
    4.  Click OK then save your form

    We hope this helps you. Thank you for using JotForm!
