    The closest I managed to get was this:

    If that's okay, do the following:

    1. Go to the ADVANCED DESIGNER page by clicking the blue FORM DESIGNER icon then the ADVANCED DESIGNER button.

    2. Once you're there, you need to change the styling of the Dropdown Fields. So, click any dropdown field on your form > go to DROPDOWN STYLES > pick the 2ND STYLE > go back > then SAVE your changes.

    3. Afterwards, add the following CSS codes:

    li[data-type="control_dropdown"] > div.form-input:before, li[data-type="control_dropdown"] > div.form-input-wide:before, li[data-type="control_time"] div .form-sub-label-container:before {

        background: #444 !important;

        width: 24px !important;



    li[data-type="control_dropdown"] > div.form-input:after, li[data-type="control_dropdown"] > div.form-input-wide:after, li[data-type="control_time"] div .form-sub-label-container:after {

        border-width: 8px !important;

        top: 32% !important;

        border-color: #ddd transparent transparent transparent !important;
