    Can I create a simple horizontal line to divide sub-sections in my Form?

    Asked by District1010 on February 02, 2013 at 05:01 PM

    Headings are one thing but whilst I have many Headings I would like to simply add a simple plain horizontal line to seperate some of my questions within the Headings?  Hoe do I do this?

    You can use the Free Text(HTML) tool, then use the html <hr> tag.


    Inform us if you have further inquiry.

    That works just fine within the HTML created box but it would be more useful if a plain simple line could be added to the form rather than have a line within a box.  Hope that is clear?  In just the same way that we can drag a box to the form could we drag a horizontal dividing line?

    It's an interesting suggestion. I'll submit a ticket requesting that a horizontal line be added to the form tools.

    Thanks for the idea.

    +1 on that idea!! because "power tools" and "free text" don't seem to be available in my interface.....

    There was a change in Jotform menus, so "free text" field is now under Form tools tab and is called "Text" also with Image field. Password box stopped being part of the fields. And Date/Time is under Quick tools. The rest you can find upon typing on widget tab.

    Kindly let us know if you need more assistance.

    I second the request for a simple "Quick Tool" to add a basic line. I have imported from FormsCentral and I'm quite surprised this feature doesn't exist here. Please add this with the option for colour. Thank you.

    We currently have a widget that makes possible to create sections in the form, it's called Form Separators Widget
