    How do I change print button text

    Asked by stynia on June 18, 2014 at 05:51 PM

    When I make a form with the possibilty to print the form, the text on the button is right "Afdrukken formulier". Nicer or better is "Print formulier" or Formulier afdrukken".

    On the website is the text on the button "Print Form".

    I will use only Dutch text and Englisch text between it see not so nice. How can I change it.

    How to Change Clear and Print Button Text


    Jotform has built in languages that automatically changes clear and print button text when you switched your form builder to a different language. However, there are lovely users that always looks for a custom one. Well, that's possible! Here's a workaround on how to change these text with the power of CSS.
    Print and Clear
    1. First, you should learn how to inject custom CSS codes to your form. It's pretty easy, here's a guide:
    a. While  on  your form (Edit Mode), click Setup & Embed then  Preferences
    b. On the Preferences window, go to Form Styles tab and then insert your CSS Code under Inject Custom CSS Box.
    2. Inject the following CSS codes to your form. You can pick which one you'd like to apply.
    a. To change Clear text, inject this CSS.
    .form-submit-reset:after {
    content: "YOUR CLEAR TEXT HERE";
    font-size: 12px;
    a. For the Print text, use this.
    .form-submit-print{ font-size:0;
    .form-submit-print:after {
    content: "YOUR PRINT TEXT HERE";
    font-size: 12px;
    Just replace the content text to your preference.
    Note that this isn't supported with older IE browsers like IE7 and earlier.

    It doesn't work. The text "YOUR PRINT TEXT HERE" became after "Print Form".

    The text on the button is now"Print Form Print fromulier".

    I think that the problem is in  "after" what David give me.


    I fix it with the following info: http://www.jotform.com/answers/289959-HiI-injected-this-css-code-but-i-see-now-both-names-for-the-buttons1-?entrymessage=10732640770

    Am I correct to assume that you were able to resolve the problem using the link you provided above? Were you able to resolve the problem by replacing the ":after" on the CSS code?

    Let us know if you still need out assistance.

    Hi BryanPaulo,


    Yes I fix the problem with the link above. On a few felds you must addit it with !important. That are missing in the answer of David, why it didn't work.

    Do it follow and for me it work:

    /*--PRINT BUTTON--*/



    font-size:0 !important;




    content: "Drucken" !important;

    font-size: 12px !important;
