    Asked by ctphoto on July 09, 2015 at 03:41 PM

    This just started happening, was working fine.

    The form submissions are seems to be still accepted, but I do see the validation error caused by the Drawing Captcha widget. 

    A bug report has been attached to this thread and forwarded to our next level support.

    We will get back to you as soon as we have any updates.

    Upon checking the report ticket I see that it is still marked as "opened" and has labeled priority "Important". Unfortunately, it seems like it is still being investigated and a fixed has not yet been implemented. 

    We will update you as soon as we hear any news on this, unfortunately, I'm unable to give an expected date or time frame for this as this is handled by a different team, but rest assure that someone is already looking on to this.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Our developers are still looking into the issue. For what its worth, I couldn't consistently reproduce the issue on my test form:


    Sometimes, the error was displayed only for a fraction of a second, and the submission still completes if the Drawing Captcha field is correctly filled. If it is not filled correctly, the submission is prevented, as expected.

    Other times, when all fields are filled in correctly, I did not even see the error appearing.

    We will let you know when our developers fix the issue with the error erroneously appearing briefly when the widget has been filled in correctly. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
