    Can you please tell us a little more about what kind of tags you are looking to add to a Text Box field?

    If you are looking to add a HTML tag to the Text Box field, you can only do that by downloading the source code of your form and adding the HTML tags to the field on the edited source code that you would be pasting to your website.

    If you are asking about editing its attributes such as read-only or disabled, you can set a field as read-only by editing its properties (gear-shaped icon > Edit Properties, and set Read-only to Yes).

    If you are asking about some other kinds of tags, please tell us a little more about what kind of tags did you have in mind, or what you are trying to achieve, and we will be happy to look for possible solutions. We will await your response. Thank you.
