    Custom CSS applies in design mode but not when the form is previewed or published

    Asked by aosphere on December 13, 2016 at 05:40 AM

    Hi there, 

    I have added this CSS to my form

    .form-all {

        border : solid #5C6F7B;



    ...and the border shows up in the design mode. But the border is missing when I click Preview or when published. Please could someone help?

    Upon inspection, it turned out that this CSS rule was overridden, please use this custom CSS instead like this:

    .form-all {
        border: solid #5C6F7B !important;

    Please let us know if you need further assistance with the issue.
