    Add the posibility to add hint examples to quick fields like the Full Name or Address

    Asked by bsiforms on November 19, 2014 at 04:57 PM

    There is a way to add Hint Example for text boxes however, when you add a Full Name or Address under Quick Tools the only hints that appear underneath the input field. 

    My issue with this is that when we do a form with just hints/labels appearing in the text box and want to use the Quick Tools, it looks irregular because of the labels that are underneath the input.

    I understand that this can be fixed by making our own preset but is there a way to get Hint Example configuration button for Full Name & Address Bar or have an option to put those hints inside the input easily?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible to accomplish using the form editor.
    You need to inject custom CSS to hide the sub-labels and would need to use the full source code of your form to add the placeholder property to each field to show the hint.

    The CSS code to hide the sub-labels, is the following:

    .form-sub-label {
       display : none;

    I will also submit your thread as a feature request so it can be evaluated by our developers, please allow some time to evaluate its feasibility and you'll be notified here when an update regarding this matter shows up.
