Special Characters in Table When Submitting Records on Text Area With Rich Text Editor


Question

I have a submission form that has a text area wherein the rich text editor is enabled. Whenever I submit records,there are some unnecessary special characters that are found on my table for this particular field which I don't remember entering. For example, if I enter the word "don't", it appears on the table as "don't".

Is there any way to avoid this?

Hello princezuko,

If the rich text editor is enabled for your text area, the HTML editor is also enabled by default which means that it is auto-fixing the values that you enter. Luckily, I discovered a way to avoid the unnecessary special characters from being saved to your table. Here's how:

1. In your text area, click paste as plain text:

2. Enter the values that you would like to submit from the pop-up window:

3. Click 'OK' and the submitted record will be interpreted on the table as it is.
