    My form is not giving the correct style/layout in the form builder

    Asked by RogerYelvington01 on January 03, 2014 at 07:41 AM

    Hey Guys!


    Love the service - new to jot form, and I know I'll be long time user!  Question:  Currently the format on the website is good, but the actual file is showing differently in jot forms editor ever since I tested some CSS code?


    I deleted the code, and the link is showing the form properly - however the editor still shows incorrect margins and sizes of the form.

    form: http://form.jotform.us/form/40015488515149

    Please help! 

    Thank you!

    That is happening because of the large width of the form and it affects the style/layout of the form builder, but that is something you do not need to worry about. That ususally happens with very large forms.

    However, after checking the form in the builder from my side I found that I got a different result:

    The blocks of the image and text are inside ot the background block in my image, but not in yours. So, it is possible that you are using an updated version of your browser and that is not supporting the current layout of the builder. We recommend to our users to use Chrome browser, it will support the updates of our website.

    So, please try using a different browser and inform us if the issue still persists.
