    I noticed as well that you can press Enter key and the preview widget option can be bypassed.

    I think its a glitch on the widget. So I will notify our developer about this glitch so they can check also.

    It may have nothing to do with the Preview before submit widget. 

    Here is a form I just created - https://form.jotform.com/62511857778973

    Is that normal behavior (enter key submits the form)?

    The thing is there's a Preview widget on the form. It doesn't do a Preview when you only hit Enter key (not using the Submit button)

    On your form, the preview button has been renamed to "Submit". :-)

     

    So that's not the submit button, but the Preview button -- I cloned the form https://form.jotform.com/62519060463958

    You have to click on the preview button to open the preview page.

    So hitting enter submits the form despite the preview before submit widget being on the form. 

    I'm wondering if that is a bug altogether.

    Yup. This is what my ticket was about. :-)

    Here is a video on the difference also.

    I wanted to use the Preview widget as a warning page before final submission... but if you use enter key, this workaround will not work.

    Ok. 

    Two questions:

    1. I really don't see what we could change in the Preview Before Submit widget to prevent hitting the enter key from submitting the form

    2. I think it's a submit button bug - I remember that being a problem a couple of years ago. You should probably report it.

    I see. Upon reviewing, I think you are right.

    Hitting the enter key actually have nothing to do with the Preview Before Submit widget. So I agree that this is not the bug.  It was #2 instead.

    #2

    Yes. I remember it as well. I'll create a separate test form and report for it.

    Thank you for the assistance. I guess this ticket is now resolved :-)

    Cheers
