    How can I remove the space at the top of my form?

    Asked by DebCarr on March 24, 2017 at 08:25 AM

    I'm playing with my border styles in CSS.  But no matter what I do, the final comes up like this...https://form.jotform.us/70815189915162  where the border is correct all the way around, but at the top, there is an extended form piece.  Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    Hi there,

    Please inject the following CSS to your form.


    .form-all {

       padding-top: 0px;



    The result should be as follows.

    Thank you.  So although I had no padding properties anywhere, I had to add a 0 padding line?

    The reason why it was needed to be set to zero (0) was because there's an extra padding at the top. The form has default padding values around it and it's not something you entered manually somewhere in the form builder.

    So worry not, the CSS codes given by my colleague should suffice and I'm seeing the borders are now even all throughout the form.

    In case you need more help, don't hesitate to let us know.
