    Moving field to any section I want

    Asked by premierdepogrl on November 09, 2014 at 08:49 PM


    I have a question!!!!  Seems when I add new fields to an existing form they go to the very bottom of my VERY long form.  Unfortunately, I have to continually highlight the field, click on settings and choose 'move up' OVER and OVER and OVER again!!!  Why can't I just click and drag the field???  When I attempt to do that, the whole form highlights and nothing happens.  What am I doing wrong??? Is there a trick?? I'm constantly editing my form and find this very laborious, to say the least!!!  HELP!

    Actually, it's a drag and drop form builder so you should be able to drop the field to any section you want. When you click on the field, it will automatically add it to the bottom. So you should "click hold" on the field > drag > drop to the section:


    When you hold it, you will see a dashed line at the bottom letting you know the current section where the field will be added if you drop it.

    With regards to the highlight issue when you try to do this, what is your browser when creating the form? Were you able to replicate this to the other browser? Please try it. We recommend Google Chrome.

    Thank you!
