    This is when the Preview Before Submit widget is present in the form.

    This is a glitch and I have now forwarded this thread to our developers for them to check this further. If there are updates, you should know it through this thread.

    For the meantime, inject the following custom CSS codes to hide the duplicate:

    #cid_54 > div:nth-child(2) {

        display: none;


    Here's how to inject the CSS codes: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes
