How can I have a entry field within a text field?Asked by jtjohnson on August 18, 2016 at 04:28 PM
I am creating a form wherein I need to have a field within some lines of text. Here is what I am trying to reporduce in my form:
I promise to pay copying charges as listed in the attached Copy Fee Schedule. If the copying charges will exceed $ _____, please call me to discuss. Iunderstand thatImay be asked to pay the feefor copies in advance before the copies are made.
I would like to have the $____ be a fill-in-the-amount field. Is that possible?
Also, is there a way to make smaller the space between field elements in the overall form?

Thanks for all your help thus far.
Now, as I am trying to preview my form
https://form.jotform.com/62305565921152 I run into the problems
highlighted in the image below.
* I have set the maximum number of characters in the telephone variable to
be 19. That would allow individuals to put parentheses around area codes,
hyphens between the number sets and add an extension with up to four
characters, e.g. *x0000 *yet I get this error message for the telephone
field* Secondly, my email address being entered in digital signature field is
quite valid, yet it keeps bouncing up its error message.
Suggestions? Thank you.
