    Is The Default Background Color White Or Transparent?

    Asked by markashton on June 22, 2015 at 04:22 PM


    When creating a form, from scratch, if one looks under Preferences > Form Styles > Background .... the default setting is Click To Edit ...

    In its default state what is the background color of the form .... white or transparent?

    Many Thanks

    The default background is white.  If you embed a form without making any styling changes, the background will be white and will not show through to your page background.  The background must be specifically set to be transparent if you would like it to be so.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
