    Lightbox: form element settings pops up in a fixed position, near the top of the form.

    Asked by eshlepper on September 24, 2014 at 11:49 PM
    But, for something that you can duplicate yourself, on a very long form, the UI can jump around and dump you back at the top of the form editor repeatedly. INFURIATING. Also, the lightbox popup editor for individual form element settings pops up in a fixed position, near the top of the form. So, if editing a form field near the bottom of a long form, when the settings icon is clicked, the popup pops up at the top of the page. You have to manually scroll all the way up to it, and when you save it, you back at the top of the form… endless scrolling up and down and up and down. A scroll-to function that brings it into view would be ok, but disorienting. I'd go with making the popup popup IN the viewable browser window area.

    Hello eshlepper,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question.

    Is it related to Lightbox embed option? Please be noted that Lightbox will always load in the center of your web page. 

    When you say "So, if editing a form field near the bottom of a long form, when the settings icon is clicked, the popup pops up at the top of the page", this seems to be related to form editor which makes it confusing.

    Do you mean to say that when you edit your form and make a change at the bottom of your form field, saving it scrolls up the form to top? 

    I would suggest you to please explain your question a bit more in detail so that we can address it accordingly. 

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!
