    Is it possible to not have the form submit when the enter key is pressed?

    Asked by mBaum on November 11, 2014 at 02:12 PM

    When filling out the form, if you hit the enter key while in one of the fields it submits the form. Is there a way to stop this from happening? Forms are being submitted be for they are finished.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This is a standard form submission behavior upon the enter keypress, and unfortunately, there is no way to change it using built-in tools in our editor.

    You might consider setting the obligatory fields as Required. It should prevent the submission with unfilled required fields.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
