Can't Submit proposal

I am new to Upwork and trying to submit my first proposal. I have filled out the entire form and when I hit submit I get the message "Value is required and can't be empty" under the box where I typed my cover letter. what am I doing wrong? The box is not empty.

Hi Denys,


I checked and you have a Client account! Can you be more specific regarding the issue you are experiencing so that we can assist you further?

Same problem here. There is no thing to fill in, but still get the error.


Hi Alan,


I tried and can't seem to replicate the issue you're describing as the OP. Could you please share with us a screenshot of the error from your end so that we can take a closer look? We'll have that reviewed and assist you accordingly.


Additionally, as a freelancer your profile picture has to accurately represent who you are, it obviously shouldn't be a photo of a place, a design or object, or someone or something else (also, misrepresenting who you are, goes against our Terms of Service.) You may visit this help article to learn more about choosing a good profile picture.


We're looking forward to your response.
