    How do you remove the submit button with the new version of JotForm? When you try to remove it like the rest of the fields it does not have a trash button icon.

    You need to select the submit button field to see the trash or delete button. 

    Here's a screenshot of it:


    I just checked your account and the latest form you have and I don't see any issues, here's a screencast of it:


    Could you please try again? I suggest also using a different browser to see if the problem persists in your end.

    I do try to select the submit button but nothing happens. It just give me the option to move the submit button up and down my form. I have also tried using different browsers.

    I assume that you have issues with this form I have cloned mentioned form and I was able to replicate mentioned issue. Your form has 3 submit buttons and I was not able to remove them. 

    It seems that this issue is related to CSS code that you have added to your form. Somehow it is affecting on submit button inside of Form Builder and Remove and Properties options are not shown.

    On my cloned form I was able to resolve this issue by removing this CSS code:

    li[data-type=control_button] {

        background : rgb(0, 0, 204);

        overflow : hidden;

        padding-top : 10px;

        padding-bottom : 10px;



    After I removed CSS code I was able to remove submit buttons. I removed 2 submit buttons and I have then added CSS code back.  

    Here is my cloned form: 

    Feel free to clone it
