    Unfortunately, we don't have an exact option to disable the enter button from submitting your jotform.

    However, it is possible to do this via your jotform's source code. Please see this thread here http://www.jotform.com/answers/355370-How-to-stop-form-submitting-when-enter-is-pressed for a workaround provided by one of our supporters who explains how to do that.
