This field type is used for longer text or multi-line messages. The size of the box is adjusted based on the length of the text.
A hidden field is a field that will not be visible to the user, but which will be sent when the form is submitted. For example you could use this field type to store IDs that can come from a search field or predefined values.
The field type Image creates a field to add an image to the form.
Tip! If you want to make sure the images in the form is scaled to the screens size, you could add CSS classes for this. Read more about images and CSS classes in the Bootstrap documentation.
Add two Bootstrap CSS classes; img-responsive and col-md-6 in Advanced settings for the Image field. The result is an image that will stay at 6/12 columns in width and at the same time keep proportions and scale accordingly to the screens size.
Example above showing an Image field with two Bootstrap CSS classes, img-responsive and col-md-6.
This field type is used when you want to present several different options, where you can choose only one at the same time (unlike the field type Checkbox where you can tick several options).

The Select field is used when you want to make a list presented in a drop-down form, where you can select only one value. Settings for preselected options are available.
If you you want an option to contain a different value than its text,
enter the option using this format: Option text;Option value
This field type can be used for input of shorter, simpler free text.
A numeric field is preferably used when you want the user to enter digits in the form. You can only write digits in this field type. This field can be used for entering social security numbers, telephone numbers or anything else that may only contain digits. Maximum number of characters (digits) can be specified.
Section breaks are used to be able to group fields and put Conditions on an entire section. The Section break will group underlying fields until the fields end or at the position in the list of fields where you put another Section break.
