    Hello wtucker0092,

    You can inject custom css code in your form to hide any specific or all field's label. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/198-How-to-Remove-Field-Labels-in-a-Form 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    And for us dummies it would be nice to just have the option to have the label inside the field like you have already for top, bottom etc

    If I understand correctly, I think you're referring to the Hint text that can be displayed on textbox and textarea fields. Like the screenshot below:

    If this is correct, you can use the Hint Example button to display the label name inside the field.

    Let us know if this what you're referring to or it's something different.
    Thank you.

    You can hide the label or labels by following the steps on the guide provided by Ashwin on his response. This way the label will not be shown in your form and you can also use the input mask to display the label name inside the fields. However, please note that the input mask in available only for text boxes and text areas.

    If you have further questions, please let us know.
    Best Regards.

    Just to add my two cents worth to the conversation, there's an option in the Form Designer to hide all textbox labels (excluding any sub-labels). Here's how:

    1. Click the Designer button:


    2. On the Design tab, click Label Styles and select No Label:


    Cheers
