    How do I align the Heading Text with the rest of my form?

    Asked by AFreshApproach on January 31, 2015 at 02:45 AM

    Here is the form I am working on:


    The "Sign up for Our Events" does not line up with the "Choose Event" Text.

    Here is my injected Custom CSS:

    .form-line, .form-label-left {
    padding-left: 0;
    .form-html {padding: 0px !important;}
    .form-header {padding-left: 0px !important;}
    .form-dropdown {font-size: 1em !important;}
    .form-dropdown {
    font-family: Verdana !important;}
    .form-textbox {font-family: 'Verdana';font-weight: normal !important;font-size: 12px;color: black;}
    /* Change the color of input boxes */
    .form-textbox, .form-textarea, .form-radio-other-input, .form-captcha input, select {
    border: 1px solid black !important;
    }/* For sub-labels under the text boxes */
    .form-sub-label {
    color: black;
    font-size: 12px !important;

    Thanks for your help.

    To set the header to fall to the left you would need to add this CSS code:

    .form-header {
        margin: 0;

    If you would also like to make the background transparent instead of white, please add this CSS as well:

    body, html, form.jotform-form, div.form-all {
        background: none transparent !important;

    You can inject the CSS code following these steps: Inject Custom CSS Codes

    Do let us know how it goes.

    Thanks but unfortunately the .form-header CSS did not work.  Does it matter where you add it in the Inject Custom CSS?

    Thanks for the transparency CSS.

    I always suggest adding the CSS code at the very bottom since last code in there is the one that the browser will use (as it overwrites the same code that were declared before it).

    Can you please try this CSS code?

    .form-header-group {
        margin-left: 0;

    Do let us know if it works.
