    One Change Leads To Multiple Changes On A Form

    Asked by markashton on March 22, 2017 at 01:58 PM


    I am a long-term user of Jotform.

    I can take an existing form ... make one change e.g the font colour ... and see the font style also change on the header .... 

    Jotform offers two designers ... V3 & V4

    It also seems to have properties areas for the whole form .... properties areas for individual fields ... along with simple designers ... and yet there is an advanced designer accessible to.

    Not only that ... one can inject CSS into these designers

    I've spent two hours trying to change a simple contact form ... to understand the architecture of what I am dealing with ... it's a mess.

    I can try to change the font color in a certain area of jotform and it doesn't work .... only to find that there is an area somewhere else that is controlling this.

    Can I ask whether others are having any problems?

    I mean ... I'm the best you'll get at this ... and I can't figure out where to start with an existing form ...

    Difficult to know how to procced

    I'm having better productivity. 

    I have decidede to stick with Jotform V4 and just use the Advanced Designer ... and it's going better.

    there is a lot of CSS on my forms and this can prevent changes being seen.

    I'll keep you updated.

    The form designer is actually noticeably quick.

    It used to be quite slow ... but now I'm moving around quickly.

    I'm also appreciating the complexity of functions ... etc ... keep you in the loop
