    I am trying to embed a video from Vimeo using an iFrame. When I insert the HTML into the "Free Text (HTML)" editor and click "Complete," nothing appears. When I return to the editor, the HTML is gone. Please help!

    It should work fine. I have embedded your video to a sample form: http://form.jotform.me/form/20807082441447

    Go to Power Tools > Free Text (HTML) and paste the code below and hit complete.

    <iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/40156535?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen>   </iframe>

    OK. You've proven it can be done. Except I am still unable to  save the code in the HTML editor. I've tried using a PC and a Mac, IE, Firefox and Safari, all to no avail. I have tried closing out of JotForm, clearing the cache, and removing the Free Text (HTML) element and replacing it. Is there another way to embed a piece of HTML?

    Properties! I pasted the code into the HTML section under Free Text (HTML) properties and it worked. The editor is shot. No clue what's wrong. But it worked.

    It should work fine using both the editor or the properties section. Anyhow, glad to know it's working now.
