    I'd like to place fill-in the blank notes for a mobile app created for my church. (i.e. Today is ____________.) I'd like people to be able to take notes within out app on the form we create in JotForm.  Then I'd like them to email the notes to themselves. Is that possible with Jotform?

    Thank you for contacting us. I apologize if I am bit confused on your inquiry concerning about the implementation. Are you planning to use a mobile app that can interact with JotForm or do you want to use JotForm to be used on mobiles to take down notes?

    Unfortunately, we do not have yet a fill in the blank approach as we mostly use "Fields" that are simply textboxes or drop-down boxes but I believe this is still can be done directly from the Form Builder using injected CSS codes. You may use this CSS code to make all textbox fields as blank lines:

    .form-textbox{
    border-top:none !Important;
    border-left:none !Important;
    border-right:none !Important;
    background:none !Important;
    box-shadow:none !Important;
    }

    Then locate the ID of the textbox fields by clicking the Cog/Gear wheel icon and click Show Properties

    Then use the ID to target it from CSS code and play with the positioning by adjusting the margin-left

    #input_1{
    margin-left:-96px;
    }

    Please see this guide on How to Inject Custom CSS Codes.

    Is this the same idea you want to achieve? Please let us know and feel free to correct me if I may have off-tracked to what you have initially intended to achieve. Thank you
