Can text calculations be impacted by AJAX settings?

I have run into an issue with a text calculation in a multi page form. The calculation is set to be the default value for a long text field. This calculation collates data as a comma separated list from a separate checkbox field. It is meant to allow for text edits and additions on top of the data as needed. The calculation consists of the field ID for the checkbox field. In the past I have not had any issues with this format. Currently, any edits and/or additions to the text calculation are not being saved on submit. All that appears is the original comma separated list from the checkbox field selections. I am curious if my AJAX settings might be throwing the calculation off. I have 'Load and save the form builder with Ajax' enabled since it is a longer multi page form. 'Submit this form with AJAX' is disabled since it was causing some issues with modal usage. If I have to disable the modal it is more important that this text calculation work properly. Thanks for any feedback on this.   -Matt

You've definitely overshot my knowledgeabse :). Have you looked for any Javascript errors in the console? I suggest setting up a couple of forms as test cases and add and remove stuff until it either breaks or works. Then you'll have a reproducible case and set of steps to file a support ticket.

Thanks for your response Rob. I just confirmed that the AJAX setting IS required to be enabled in order to record any edits in a text calculation. Seems to be working fine now.
