    You can add border around the questions in your form by Injecting Custom CSS. To do that inside of your Form Builder select Setup & Embed tab, then click on Preferences, then select Form Styles tab and inside of Inject Custom CSS field at the bottom of existing code paste this code:

    .form-line {

        border : 1px solid black;   


    After adding this code your form will look like this.

    Here is my cloned form where I added mentioned code.


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

    Hi thanks for the response. But this css code will apply this to all text parts in my form. I only want to do this for section A, page 2. Is this possible?

    You need to target the field ID's in the page 2. I have it for you, simply add the following custom CSS codes to your form.
















    #id_209 {

    border: 1px solid #000;


    Please follow the same guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes. Add the codes the bottom part.
