    Hello sheriff, 

    I'm still working on your form, trying to change the color of the text.

    But about you second question I can tell you the advantage to signing up is that your forms are  safe and protected, and you can access at any time to your account and your forms will be there no matter if you are not using your own computer. But if you don't sign up your forms run the risk to be lost, you wont be able to acces to your forms from other computers.

    I hope this helps.

    I will try to change the color and get back to you.

    Please try to change the background and font color following these steps:


    1. Go to Form Style tab in the toolbar.

    2. Choose Background, there you will be able to change the color.


    Yo can find several colors sorted by HEX values HERE.



    1. Go to Form Style tab in the toolbar.

    2. Choose Font Color.


    As in the background option, you can choose the color or type the HEX value. The form will look this way:

    I cloned your form to do the changes, here is the link of mine: http://wwwt.jotform.com/form/31847309484967

    In addition to my colleague, another advantage between registered account and guest account(not registered) is account space and submission limit were guest account allows you only to received 10 submissions per month were as Registered account like Free basic account allows you to received 100 submissions per month. For more information, please take a look at our pricing page

    With regards on changing the text and background color, aside on using Form Style "Font Color" and "Background Color" feature to change the color, you can however use some custom css and inject into your form. Please take a look at this articles for more detailed information.
