    I'm not sure I understand best option to use when you are asking someone to enter a number...

     

    If I use the number option under Quick Tools, I don't understand what the properties really affect or do...

    And not sure how to not allow a negative number choice.

     

    Or is it better to just have a text box and let them type a number in?

    i.e.  "how many packs a day do you smoke?"... 

     

    Thanks...

    I don't think it really matters an awful lot which of those you choose. 

    You can have Numeric validation for both fields (which wont allow negative numbers also). 

     

    It just comes down to personal preference.
