    how do I create a padding in the form input area so the when the user types in a value it starts a bit to the right , not too close to the left border of the input area (see screenshot).

    Hi,

    For textboxes, simply inject the following custom CSS codes to your form:

    .form-textbox {

    padding-left: 10px !important;

    }

     

    For textareas, add the following codes:

    .form-textarea {

    padding-left: 10px !important;

    }

     

    Follow this guide for adding the custom CSS codes in the form: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Thanks
