    How to change the style of submit button without entering Form Designer?

    Asked by maow001 on December 08, 2014 at 11:44 AM

    Hi, i'm doing a new form, when I try to change the button style I've been pushed in to new design panel.. that is fine but the form gets some unexpected features such as background color, unnecessary images, padding and more.. I need forms with no background colors, I just need change button styles.. I think that the style panel should be an optional feature, not mandatory..

    I took a look and you are right, the button for styling does seem to take you to Form Designer.

    I will notify our developers so that they can check if this was an error, but this is most likely set to activate Form Designer since it will give you more options on styling the button than what you were able before.

    Now if you still want to remove all the code added by Form Designer and just change the style of submit button, I would suggest to follow these steps:

    1. restore your jotform to the state before it got into Form Designer.
    2. Apply the style through properties.

    To apply the style through the properties, you should click on the submit button. Then click on the little wheel in the right corner and select Show Properties. Once this is done you will see a new window with the option for Button Style.

    Clicking on it will allow you to change the theme of your submit button.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
