    How do I remove colored field (background) around submit button or page breaks?

    Asked by emucoe on June 29, 2015 at 04:29 PM


    I imported several forms from FormsCentral, and I am wanting to edit out a "feature", where the submit button is embedded in a colored area. The same is true for some Back / Next page breaks in some forms.

    So far, I have been unable to locate the CSS or formatting that might control this issue. For example, this stripped-down version of an imported form, has the colored frame around the submit button:


    ... and this one, created from scratch, has a clean area around the button:


    Where should I be looking to remove the frame of color from around the submit button? Or, what search terms should I have used in your support forum to locate the answer?

    Thanks in advance,

    Please try injecting the following CSS in order to set a transparent background for Page Breaks and Submit buttons.

    li[data-type=control_pagebreak], li[data-type=control_button] {
    background: transparent;

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know. We will be happy to help.
