    How do I and if not, why can't I copy and paste from a word document or another form?

    Asked by thankins1 on May 22, 2016 at 01:59 PM

    To retype everything is problematic.  Some of my forms are basically identical but I want to amend them based on the client, or prospect.  Am a missing a feature?  Thank you.

    You can clone your existing form and make changes on the cloned form. Guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/27-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form.

    If you want to copy text from your word document and paste it on your form, use the Text tool. It's under Basic Fields. This is where you can paste text, insert images and tables, pretty much any static elements.

    If I have misunderstood your question, let us know.

    Sorry that did not work with control V or copy and paste.   Which text under basic fields do I use.  I want to coopy select text not entire forms.  I also cannot copy text from question to question within the same form.  What gives.

    This did not work. When I texted on "text box, area and Text" I was not
    able to right click to enter information. Is this blocked because I am
    using the free trial version?
    Thank you.

    able to copy is very problematic.
