    I'm sorry, but we may need to ask for more details from you regarding your request. May we know the purpose why you would be needing an alternative submit button? Kindly explain your request further so we may be able to know if it is possible. We will be looking forward to your reply. Thank you.

    My client says the current Submit button looks like an "ice cream parlour."


    We would like the Simple Orange button... see the screenshot.


    Hope this explains the issue.

    Peter, I'm afraid that your image didn't come through to our forum, but you can change the style of your submit button simply by right-clicking on the button in the Form Builder, then Show Properties, and play with the Button Style option.

    If you are talking about this form in particular, http://www.jotformeu.com/form/51624997609368, then the button styling is caused by the theme that you are using. The theme is setting the following styles on the submit button:

    .form-submit-button {
        background: url("http://www.jotform.com/uploads/ceren/form_files/submit.png") no-repeat scroll 0% 0% transparent !important;
        width: 445px !important;
        height: 86px;
        text-indent: -9999px;
        position: relative;
        left: -80px;
        border: 0px none;

    Because of the fact that you are using a theme to style your buttons on that form, you will need to apply some custom CSS to your form in order to override the theme.

    .form-submit-button.form-submit-button { 
      text-indent: 0 !important;
      position: static !important;
      width: auto !important;
      height: auto !important;
      cursor: pointer;
      border-radius: 0.5em;
      padding: 8px 18px;
      color: #FFF !important;
      font-size: 12px;
      font-weight: bold;
      text-shadow: -1px -1px 0px #D85D00 !important;
      border: 1px solid #D85D00 !important;
      box-shadow: 0px 1px 0px 0px #FFCC7A inset !important;
      background: linear-gradient(#FAA51A, #FF6C00) !important;

    Please let us know should you need further assistance.
