    Good Day, I am having an issue. I started using the preview before submit widget for user to see what they have entered before they submit but the problem i have it that the back button only allows you to go to the previous page and not for example the first page if you had an error there because the last page only has the review button.

    Also I would like to know how do you change the font size and color of the preview page.

    If you want to have a Preview Before Submit option on the multiple page form, you will need to add a Submit button first to each of the pages of the form.

    It is because the Preview Before Submit widget replaces any existing Submit button on the form, the Preview button will be the one that will appear on each of the form page.

    You can test my demo form that illustrate this solution here

    You will see that each pages has its own Preview button



    and no matter which Preview button on the page you used, it will properly preview ALL the answers on the form (for all pages). So this should work.



    Also I would like to know how do you change the font size and color of the preview page.

    Unfortunately, you cannot customize the style of the preview result.

    We can submit a request to have this feature also. I suggest you just post about it on a separate thread using this link . Make sure to mention it as a requested feature and we will forward it to our higher team support.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hello JotForm

    Writing to follow up on this thread! Any progress on the ability to have a single preview button for a multiple page form?

    Using this method on a form with required fields on later pages tends to throw users for a loop, as they click the Preview button on any given page, then try to Submit within the preview and receive an error message that submission is not possible. 

    I've put up a message that they must review an order, exit the review window, then continue the order, but this is not entirely intuitive and we receive multiple error inquiries a day. 

    Here's an example:
