    I wanna add a label on a form.  Basically just a label with text (hopefully in red) to remind the user to do something on the screen.   I can add a text field, dropdown list and etc but what about just a text label?  I must be missing something somewhere or there is a keyword there I probably misunderstand.
    Any hint would be great! Thanks so much.

        The Heading Only option is supposed to display only the Label for a Field and not the Field itself, so you would have to create a Column and Column Heading to use this.  Furthermore, in the current release if you select this checkbox it doesn't display the field or the label.   Another option is to create a Field Group which is a Heading for a group of related fields, so you could give your Field Group Name the message that you want to display.
