    I have forwarded a request to our back-end team. If there is any progress with your request, you will be updated via this thread.

    Meanwhile, you could try injecting the following code: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes 

    .form-all {

        box-shadow : 0px 0px 0px !important;

    }

    Open a new thread if you need anything else, we will be glad to assist you.

    Still an issue for me. I can change it in the Advanced Designer, but the shadow still shows up in the regular forms designer, and when I actually deploy it.

    Injecting the css does not remove the shadow on my form. These threads started ages ago and continue to be "address[ed] on a separate thread" which makes for a hell of a rabbit hole.

    I have given up for now. I did notice that when I created my form with version 3 it had no border, but when I opened it in v 4 the border showed up. This has to be an implementation issue on JotForm's end. My feedback: get rid of the drop shadow by default, add a button to turn it on. It sucks.
