We noticed merge fields become read only.

Is there a way to have merged field editable and pre-filled with data so the signer can modify the text?

Hi Andrew,

Merge fields on templates are supposed to be filled by sender, so you cannot have the signer modify the merge field text. Instead on a template, you could add a text field with a default value, which signer should be able to edit before signing it, if that makes sense.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply.

Is it possible to set default value when merging via API?
