    So is my only option to start over and create a new form?

    Just go into the Inject Custom CSS section, double click the text box, highlight all the text in the box (or hold down the CTRL key and press 'a') and press the delete button. 

    There is no need to create a new form. 

    Let us know exactly where things are going wrong if you cant get this method to work for you.

    Thanks.

    Trust me - I tried that numerous times and for some reason the whole css box is unclickable/uneditable

    Here is the link to the form - try it yourself

    I have removed the Custom CSS from that form.

    As a precaution, can you open the form now in the JotForm editor, check the CSS has been removed and re save the form. 

     

    Thanks.

    Thanks - was it malfunctioning? Why would it not allow me to delete or edit it?

    I couldnt see any issue with it at all. 

    Obviously you have been able to access that field before, so it is a little odd that you havent been able to do it today. Are you on a different PC or browser or anything? Are you able to click it to edit it now?

    I was ablr to access it to try this and then when I went to take it out it wouldn;t allow me to select it at all - I'm a little afraid to try it on this form again since I need it tonight.

    I'll make a clone and try ti there

    Nope - did it again - all of this was done on the same computer. Once I put anything into that Inject CSS box, the field becomes fixed and won;t allow me to edit it

    here is the test form

    I'm on a PC, Windows 7 pro 64 bit, IE9

    We have noted this bug on IE9 and one of our developers will fix it.

    For now, can you use a different browser to edit your forms such Google Chrome or Firefox?
