  • 1.  Text box/Text Area default text suggestion

    I would like to have the ability to edit the default text that appears in the app on a text box and text area. I know there is a way to set a default value to these fields, but I would like to alter where it says "tap to type answer". I am using the text areas in EX 1 below to show a definition depending on what Type is selected, therefore it is a locked field. They will not be taping to type an answer for these text areas. I would like to alter it to have custom defined default text, in this example I would say "Select a Type above to see the definition". If I enter this as a default value, the text is black like it was populated by the user, see EX 2 below. The light grey however implies user direction and is less busy. EX 2 works but isn't ideal so I just thought I would share this and see if anyone else has requested this or would find value in it.

    Thanks!

    Hi Lisa,

    I've submitted a feature request on your behalf to cover this.  At this time, the only workaround I can think of is the one you're already doing, setting the default text for the fields you want to change.
