    You can change the JotForm background color by following this step when in the Form Builder.

    1. Click on Form Style

    2. Click Background button

    3. In color picker window, add the code for color white ().


    This should change the background color of the form.

    Hope this help. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Looks a bit like the old Jotform to me...
    With the new "designer", I can't find a way to change the form background colour... I'd like it to be transparent, but it stays black...

    Occasionally there is a background added by a theme or something of that nature.  This can usually be changed more easily in the form builder rather than the designer.  The background on the JotForm can be made transparent by changing the background color option to Transparent in Form properties.

    Here is the preview with transparent background :

    Please refer to the guide Making-the-Form-Background-Transparent for an interactive video on changing the background to transparent.
