    I have changed color settings for section collapse (font), this is visible in edit mode but not in view/ publish. 

    What am I doing wrong?

    I have cloned and checked your form.

    Please copy and paste the following CSS to change the color of the Section Collapse Text:

    .form-collapse-mid {
        text-shadow: 0px 1px 0px #222;
        color: #222222;
        float: left;
        font-size: 18px;
        margin:16px 45px 16px 20px

    Please see the screenshot below:

    I have checked your JotForm and see that the code applied is working correctly. The white shadow is going unnoticed due to the background color of section collapse. 

    I see that there is a closing brace in the CSS code which is causing the back/next buttons misaligned. Please remove it so that the buttons are aligned properly.


    Hope this information helps! Please get back to us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thanks, it works.

    But I can't understand why the closing brace is causing the trouble.

    And also, for some reason I am now able to use white shadow.

    The opening and closing braces are mandatory. If you have one brace without the matching end brace this will produce a syntax error. What will happen is that the browser will take the next available closing tag and your page will not display as intended.
