    Yes, you can alter the style of it through its CSS field.

    You can see here the finished jotform with the style already added to it: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42955470298971

    If you want to clone it to your account you should follow these steps: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL

    Now these are the steps to create the same:

    1. Open the Matrix Dynamique wizard and and scroll down to the Custom CSS field

    Now paste this CSS in the Custom CSS field:

    tr#contentHeader > th[scope="col"] {
        background-color: red;
        border: 2px solid black;
        color: white;
        margin: 0 !important;
        padding: 0 7px;
        width: 33%;
        word-break: break-all;
    #contentTable > tbody > tr,#contentTable > tbody > tr >td {
        border: 1px solid gray;
        text-align: center;
        width: 100%;
    #contentTable > tfoot > tr >td {
        padding: 0 10px;
    #contentTable > tfoot > tr > td > input {
        height: 40px;
        width: 100px;
        margin-top: 2px;

    Now click on Finish and save your jotform. Please take a look at its preview and it should look like the one I added at the start.

    If you have any further questions, please let us know.
