    How to remove left and top padding on the form?

    Asked by atlspeech on January 30, 2017 at 10:34 PM

    It seems that forms which have are newly opened in the design editor lose all formatting. More recently, it also loses the alignment format. The form used to be flush/aligned with the words from the web page but there now seems to be a left and top gap.

    I've tried adding the coding I've seen in other threads and none have been successful in fixing this issue.  

    Please see attached URL.

    Please try adding the following CSS code to the form to remove the padding.

    .jotform-form {

    padding: 0px !important;


    Hope this information helps!

    I see that the top padding is adjusted on the form. However, the left padding is related to the fields which can be adjusted by injecting the following CSS code:

    .form-line {

    padding-left: 5px;


    Please inject this code and let us know if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to assist.
