Sometimes the (red) required * is in the wrong place.
This happens because sometimes automatically html code is added to the text. By using the softkey 'source code' in the screen where you can adapt the text of the field, you will see the text in html code. In front of the text you will see the code: '< P >' or '< Div >' after the text: '< /P >' or '< /Div >'. If you delete these 2 codes, the (red) star will be just after the text.
If you want to use some extra space, you can put an enter in the 'low' or 'upp' of the field.
