    I can not find where the "ADD a Section" button is?  How do I follow the instructions if I can not see this button?  Need more information here to help make this easier to figure out for a first time user.

    Hi John,

     

    Thanks for your comment.   This article documents a feature that is about to be released -- you won't see the "ADD A SECTION" button yet because you are working in the "Classic" form Builder, which is documented in this area of our support site:  https://support.prontoforms.com/hc/en-us/categories/115001230006-Classic-Form-Builder
