    You can easily change the Hint Example text by selecting the field and then clicking the Hint Example button at the top toolbar.

    Hope that helps. Let us know if this is not what you need. Please provide more details and a screenshot would be helpful. Thank you.

    Have included screenshot to illustrate the issue. The first image shows the
    form in development. If you look at the field I've labelled 'Revisions'
    you'll see it looks perfectly normal

    But, when I click the preview button you'll see it appears with a row of
    numbers embedded

    Thank you for the screenshot. I was able to replicate your issue. I created a form on my account and put a text area field. If the label starts with a prefix of "rev", the numbers (1459260017293) appear in the preview mode.

    Let me report this issue to our developers so that they can investigate about it. We'll let you know once there is an update available via this thread.
