    how to insert a new line in text area field when pressing "enter"

    Asked by bioecos on October 21, 2016 at 09:53 AM

    Hi! I've created a form with a text box in it, I've tried to fill this form but when entering information in the text box field, pressing Enter unexpectedly submits form insted of inserting a new text line. I can't find any option to change this.

    I would suggest you to use Text area instead of text box, from the Basic fields. And it should resolve your issue. Please check the screenshot below:


    You can also verify it on my clone form here: https://jotform.com/62943688114968

    If you face any issue or need further assistance, feel free to revert back.

    Thank you.
