This part of the stencil:

Needs to have a little snippet text below like this:


@akshatpradhan thanks for including the screencaps -- but Dropmark is throwing a Permission Denied error. Maybe there's a public setting that needs to be enabled?

You're right, I had to set it to public.


I was also think, maybe we should have a placeholder text inside the box as well. It's becoming pretty common to use the placeholder attribute. See how "First Name" is greyed out?

I agree about the help text and I've added this update in the latest push.

I stopped short of adding the placeholder text though. In principle, I agree that this is a good affordance. But since I expect many folks will be adding dummy (but not placeholder) content into these fields, I kept the text color black. It's a few extra clicks to set the text in grey, but it seems ok in this case. Willing to reconsider if there's an outpouring of support for the placeholder-esque style.
