    How can I set a different top margin for mobile devices?

    Asked by pilgrimparking on January 17, 2017 at 02:40 PM

    At first I needed a way to reduce the extra space at the top of my form for embedding purposes for my company's website.  I found the working solution of adding the following to my CSS code in the Design window:

    .form-all {

        padding-top : 0;
        margin-top : -60px;


    It works, except for one issue: the top little bit of my form being cut off when viewed on a mobile device.

    Is there any way to code it so that it reduces the top margin by less on mobile devices?

    P.S. The "Mobile Responsive" widget did not help.

    It's easy but that CSS code isn't the right way to do it.

    First, remove that CSS codes in your form and use the following.

    .form-all, .jotform-form{

    padding-top:0 !important;


    This should get rid of the top spacing of the form without any cut off on mobile or desktop.

    Hope this helps!
