    You mean the PDF attachment sent to your email after a form is filled out? You can change the PDF layout in your PDF-Editor page.


    Once on the PDF Editor page, on the right side, you can click on the layout settings icon to change the font colors etc.

    May we know which form is in reference to your query so we can check. I just checked all your forms both the PDF converter and PDF document has a form designer button.

    Please try clearing your browser's cache and see if it will show after. I've cleared your form's cache as a precaution. 

    Do let us know how it goes.

    On the PDF editor for the Packet forms I don't get the roller thing to change stuff.

    The colour can be changed in the form builder but not in the PDF editor since it is an uploaded PDF.

    Unfortunately, in uploaded PDFs, it is not possible to change the colour.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.
