    How to create a placeholder text on a text box?

    Asked by gsalaman on November 14, 2016 at 07:40 AM
    Is it possible to also have the title of the text in the actual box which then vanishes as soon as you start typing?

    Yes, you can set a placeholder on to the textbox. Simply look for Hint Example in the tool bar, click it to show a text field where you can enter the information you want to appear as a placeholder.

    Once done, just press the OK button and save your form.
