Unable to Modify Text on Guest Checkout

Unable to Modify Text on Guest Checkout


This is really a weird one.


When you checkout as a guest the first form that appears for the Shipping Address has a text saying:
"You can create an account after checkout."
The page is  https://<your-domain>/checkout/#shipping



To modify the text I have:

- copied the file from
vendor/magento/module_checkout/ view/frontend/web/template/form/element/email.html

- changed the text in it (see the part with "This is a test...")


<form class="form form-login" data-role="email-with-possible-login"
    <fieldset id="customer-email-fieldset" class="fieldset" data-bind="blockLoader: isLoading">
        <div class="field required">
            <label class="label" for="customer-email"><span data-bind="i18n: 'Email Address'"></span></label>
            <div class="control _with-tooltip">
                <input class="input-text"
                            textInput: email,
                            hasFocus: emailFocused,
                            afterRender: emailHasChanged,
                            mageInit: {'mage/trim-input':{}}"
                       data-validate="{required:true, 'validate-email':true}"
                       id="customer-email" />
                <!-- ko template: 'ui/form/element/helper/tooltip' --><!-- /ko -->
                <span class="note" data-bind="fadeVisible: isPasswordVisible() == false">This is a test....</span>



- cleared cache

rm -Rf var/cache/*
rm -Rf pub/static/*
rm -Rf generated/*
bin/magento c:f




Overriding template files is normally not a problem and I have done it a few times.

But here nothing is changing!!??


It should be simple so I am not sure what I am doing wrong here.


I would really appreciate some help or hints.


Thanks so much!
