    While we don't have the feature that deactivates the "enter" trigger, you can still prevent the user from accidentally submitting the form when they hit enter by setting all the fields as required. Please follow the guide below:

    1. Click on the field

    2. Then click the Required option on the properties menu

    By setting all the fields as required, when a user hits enter without filling all the forms, the form will not be submitted. It will only be submitted once they have completed all the fields.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
    Regards.
