Pages background colours

    My current form is - Medicaid - BEN Financial Stress Scoring Index - Copyright © Mybank Systems Australia - Archived


    Today I made simple change to a form field. Once I saved the form ... it automatically defaulted to a grey color background through out the entire form (18 pages). It was originally white background which looked good - now with the grey background as default looks terrible.

    Please advise as to how I can change the background color back to white? I am using Jotform V 4.


    Thanks John Ferretti

    I presume there's a theme applied on your form? It seems like that theme overwrites the previous background that you have. Here's how you can fix it:

    1. First, open your Form Designer.


    2. Then click the "Advanced CSS Editor" or "Advanced Designer".


    3. Now make sure you are on the CSS tab, just edit something, we just want the formatting to correct itself. Sample, edit the property "background-color" and change the value to "white".


    4. Now save the changes and exit the designer. 

    5. After that, make sure that the changes are saved in the form builder. Now repeat steps 1 and 2, you should be able to see the CSS code formatted better. If so, edit the properties under the .form-all selector. Below are the highlighted ones that needs to be in your CSS code:


    6. Save the changes and preview your form. This is how it looks like after the change:


    I hope that helps.
