    Changes are gone when going back to the form builder after designing the form in the form designer tab

    Asked by formvendor on February 28, 2015 at 09:40 AM

    (1) I have done several iterations of custom CSS inside of your Designer, saving after each commit to then see how it looked in a separate browser. After ~3 hours of this, I back out of the designer and all of my work is gone?!? Please help!

    (2) I have modified your tabs-list widget to make it vertical and responsive. I have it to the left of the "form-sections" of my multiple page employment application. Part of the styling in {issue #1} included my attempts to make it all render correctly including applying {width: 70% !important; left: 20% !important;} first to .form-section, then to ul.form-section and then to .form-line, .form-input-wide, .form-pagebreak etc. I had hoped that all of the div's would adhere to their width of their containers... but for some reason they aren't.

    Thank you in advance for your help and for your time.

    When making the changes and before going to the form builder, did you hit save button? If so, you must see to it that the button is not spinning and you see the "preview" icon:

    Also, clearing your forms cache should work: https://www.jotform.com/help/229-How-to-Clear-your-Form-Cache if you don't see the changes when setting up an option in the form designer tab. Clear your forms cache then reload the form in the form builder/designer.


    As for the tab list widget problem, I've moved it to a new thread. Here's the new link: https://www.jotform.com/answers/524488. Will attend to it shortly.
