    Hello Adam,

    I understand that you want to duplicate a text box value to another text box on the same form. This can be achieved by using the option Update a form field value option in conditions wizard.

    The condition can be set as shown below :

    Please check the demo form below :


    Please feel free to clone this JotForm to your account to see how it works.

    Hope this information helps!

    This is fine for "text box" or "text area" = input fields. But what I'm looking for is an option for the same behaviour on pure text field (no input, just html text entered - "T" icon in Form Tools.

    As I go to conditions wizard these fields are not on the list, so I cant complete the condition formula.

    Since the HTML "Text" fields are not input fields, they are not usable by conditions.  If you need to duplicate and HTML field, click on the field then click on the little gear in the top right.  Then click on "Duplicate".   There is not currently a way to automatically update one with the revisions made in the another.
