I want users to enter only text in short questions in a Google Form.
Like, if I ask user his name then he is allowed to enter only text.
No digits or special characters.

  • What should the user do if his name is "George Windsor the 3rd" or something like that? – MaryC.fromNZ Apr 24 at 0:26

To allow users to enter only text in short questions you should use the Response validation option and as the regular expression use Matches


To take it a step further you can use an expression for 1st Capital letter(Upper case) and the rest ONLY lower case letters
