    I started posting this under the 'contact us' form earlier, but I am not sure I completed posting it. Sorry if this is a duplicate.

    I am using a condition to copy a value entered in one field to another field. If the fields are 'text box' type fields, the text I enter in the first field is not copied to the second field, just a '0' is entered in the second field. I tried the 'Full Name' field type and it worked as I expected it to. Is this a known issue with 'text box' fields and is there any way to get this working?

    I was able to reproduce this problem. https://form.jotform.com/60340949536965

    This was working before, this may have been affected by the recent update. We will let you know once this is fixed.

    We apologize for the inconvenience. Unfortunately we are unable to give you an estimated time on when your issue will be fixed. Rest assured we will inform you on this thread as soon as there are any updates. 

    In the meantime, perhaps you can use the "Calculate a field's value" to copy the text from the first field to the second.
