    I have tested your form and I was not able to submit it before I populated all fields inside of the form.

    Also I have cloned and tested your form and I saw that you have made Labelless widget required. 

    The reason why there is no required sign when you preview your form is because you have disabled labels inside of your Labelless widget. 

    If you want that required sign is shown on your form you need to enable labels.

    Here is my cloned form where i have enable labels: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51602193320948? 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    This is because those widgets are not being targeted by the CSS yet, and they are isnide a separate iframe which makes their styling even harder. Please try injecting custom CSS to your form:

    .form-line-error iframe {
    border: 1px solid #FF3200 !important;
    box-shadow: 0px 0px 3px #FF3200;

    You can also add it by opening the Designer, and pasting the code into the textbox under the CSS tab.

    Your form should now display like this one does: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51603253720950
