    We have created a form but I would like to make some small changes. I can see the source code but would like to edit it slightly. Is this possible?

    Hi,

    You can do it by download source code in order to edit it as you want :)

     

    To download source code follow this simple step:

     

    1. Open your form
    2. Click on "Setup & Share" tab
    3. Click on "Embed Form" on top menu
    4. Click on "Source" icon

    then you will get a window like below:


     

    Now you must click on the link that you see near the arrow.

    Thanks!

    Thank you. Once I've edited it how do I replace back into your site if I'm not embedding it for use on ours? We're still wanting to use the link you provide to be sent out in emails.

    Also in edit mode the headers appear orange yet in preview they become grey?

    Is it not possible to edit the source code on your site?

    Hi, Unfortunately it is not possible to edit the source code directly from jotform.

    But, You can change some of the form design using custom CSS.
