    Textarea field: Cursor not moving to a new line when pressing "enter" key

    Asked by CTec on March 31, 2015 at 03:59 AM

    The text area (user address) does not respond when I hit the enter to key to go to a new line - in Firefox and Explorer. With Chrome and Safari it is fine.

    Does anyone know how I can rectify the problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there,

    I was able to replicate your issue. You are right, the cursor is not moving to a new line when you hit the enter key. This only happens in Firefox and IE.

    I will forward this issue to our developers so that they can take a look at it. We will notify you via this thread once an update is available.

    Thank you for your patience.

    I think this is related to the issue I saw with email notifications providing a lot of space on text area fields as posted here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/543828-Forms-Spacing-Issue-for-Text-Area#0
