    transparent backgrounds

    Asked by Sladestyle on March 11, 2011 at 12:58 AM

    Sometimes I can get a transparent background with my forms.....and other times I cannot.  What triggers whether the background is or can be transparent?

    thank you.

    Hi ecoabyssinc,  if you haven't found the answer yet--in the toolbar at the top select 'background color' and delete the hex# that is in the selection field so it is empty.  That should do it.

    Hope this helps.

    To change the background to transparent go to Form Style > Background and type "transparent" to the field where you see in picture below:
    Then click OK and Save your changes. You will get a transparent form just like:

    Thank you.
