    Please use the Form Designer to make the background transparent. You can make the background transparent by moving the slider all the way to left. Please check the screenshot below. Don't forget to save.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you need any help.

    Thank you.

    I did try this... it seemed like it should have been that easy however I am unable to save the transaparent selection:





    So it appears selected and then I chose select to save the choice... but the background remains white... this is a screenshot after hitting select and then reopening the selection tool.




    Notice there are now transparent options available, but I can't get the selection to save.  :(


    Please advise. Thank you so much!

    Also, once this was figured out,

    I also wanted to revise the Thank You page that appears after the form has been successfully submitted to also be on a transparent background.

    I've applied:

    .supernova .form-all, .form-all {

        background-color : transparent;



    But I did not see any change to the form :(

    Will you please take a look from your side? www.vesellaw.com --> Real Estate Tab and scroll down to Seller Registatration. 

    Thank you!

    Our old themes once they are applied can be a rather large pain to remove.  I had to remove most of the styling but I was able to get your form to finally have a transparent background, here is my cloned version so you can see how it looks:



    I embedded it to a test site to make sure the background was transparent and indeed it was.  Preserving the old theme as well as having a transparent background may prove to be a bit more challenging.

    Thank you David, that looks great!  The only remaining question now is how to update the font color of the form field names because the gray is very difficult to read on the gray background of the site. Otherwise Perfect!

    After the changes I made above, you can just change the font color in the form builder:

    I changed it to red and the changes were applied without issue:


    To change the header color, please inject the following custom css, change the color to your liking:

    .form-header{color:white !important;}

    This guide should help you in injecting this custom css: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    That should also work.

    Let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.
