    Hello dmgius84,

    There are three different ways to achieve this:

    Option I

    1. Click Form Style
    2. Click Background
    3. A pop-up will appear and type 'transparent' inside the text field.

    See image below:


    Option II

    Another solution is going to preferences under Setup & Embed (this is beside Form Style). Then click Preferences (gear icon in tool bar).  Then just type transparent in the field.

    Option III

    Lastly, you can do CSS injection:

    In My Forms page, choose and edit your form (steps 1-3 is just the same as Option II above):
    1. Open "Setup & Embed" tab on toolbar,
    2. Click on "Preferences"
    3. Click on "Form Styles" tab

    4. Click on the value on the right side of "Inject Custom CSS" (the one that has the Click to Edit text).
    5. Insert the values:
    .form-all { background: none; }


    Hope this helps.
