    How can I reduce the size of a form?

    Asked by realestatecoach on January 08, 2015 at 03:50 PM


    I am trying to see if there is a way to adjust the overall size of a form/ template.


    I used an existing template.  But, when I adjusted the height and width from say 500 x 200  to 150 x 90  

    There were no changes in the form size.   I am looking basically to make a small form that would be about 2-3 inches in height and no more.  


    Any tricks or suggestions?


    Thank you,

    Is this form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50076916128961 similar of what you're trying to accomplish? I basically used the form designer to reduce the size of the fields and the form to make it smaller.

    If it is, you can clone it to your account to check it further. If it's not, please let us know more details on what you're trying to accomplish and we'll do our best to help you out.

    Thank you I think I can make that work.   I do have an example from one of my affiliates.  This form was a template I found.  However, is it possible for me to build one like the attached?


    Thank you again for your help  Very fast!

    Hi Jeanette,


    I posted a photo above, I'm not sure if you are able to view on your end. I was looking to make one smaller with tight lines like the one I attached.

    I did however, find a bit of a solution with the adjustments I made on the designer that Raul mentioned.  I didn't realize that tool was there.   Only thing I can't quite figure out on that one as you may have noticed on the link,  the webpage shows the form with a larger square background outside of the actual form. 

    I tried to get more of transparent look with just the box form box in the white background, but it seems that may not be an option?  Even if I click to remove both backgrounds, it still shows the white background across the length of the web page.


    Thank you for all your help

    Upon checking your site, I see that you were able to set the background color of your form as transparent and it's looking very similar to the screenshot you shared with us.

    Do you need our help with something else?

    If you do, please let us know and we'll be happy to assist.
    Thank you.
