    When using the SUBMIT function in a form the system auto submits when enter key is hit.

    bit of a pain does not matter where you are on form the enter key submits the form...

    also I noticed that when a fillable pdf is created the Tab key causes an error page to appear. any fixes for this.

    Hello brettdennison,

    Submitting the form upon enter key press is the standard behavior of any form. Unfortunately it is not possible to change this behavior in our editor.

    One possible solution is to mark some of your important form fields as "Required". It will prevent form from being submitted as it will trigger validation error. Please check the screenshot below:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    yep that can work I will place a required check box at the end next to the submit button that asks if the user is ready to submit.
