    I checked your form and have noticed that it does indeed show an empty field while I was typing.

    However, when I highlighted the field, it seems like the text input is there.

    This might be due to the font being the same color as the background.

    I made a clone of your form and opened it using the Form Designer and have confirmed my suspicions.

    To fix this, you can try changing the font color of the fields by opening the Designer page and setting the white font color to a different color.

    Or you can also try injecting the following css to change the font color to black:

    .form-textbox {

        color: #111111;


    Here is an article that can help you with injecting a custom css to your form: How to Inject Custom CSS Codes 

    Once the css code is inserted, all the input fields should be displayed properly.
