    I tried to make a form and I'm trying to cut and paste it from Word but it seemed like I can't.

    Can you kindly help because I don't want to type all the text.  It will be easier if i can just cut and paste it.

    It all varies based on what type of form field you are creating. You can paste individual labels from microsoft word, however you can not cut & paste the desired form in its entirety.

    Jotform uses drag and drop fields that are then customized. Also, why do you need so much text in the form? Typically when a user sees a lot of text & required fields they are then less likely to complete your form. If at all possible, reduce the amount of information in your form to help both your users out, and the job of making the form.

    You will have better results if you clean the formatting by copying from MS Word into say Notepad THEN from Notepad into Jotform

    Pasting any text from any source is possible to JotForm. @ireneclemente, can you please specifically tell us what part you're having trouble with? Please provide more details. It would be more easier for us if you would be so kind to provide screens on your question.

    We'll be looking forward to your response. Thank you so much, have a great day to you guys!
