    I would like to place the actual form (with the headings, fields, etc)

    Asked by tlws on August 07, 2015 at 10:59 AM

    I would like to place the actual form (with the headings, fields, etc) at the top of the page (so there is no background or margin above it) but have not been able to figure out how to do it with the custom css.

    In other words, I would like to add my own spacing above the form after I embed it.

    You can remove padding and margins from your form by Injecting Custom CSS 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-all { margin: 0 !important; padding: 0 !important; }

    Inside of  Form Designer  you can make the background of your form transparent by moving the slider all the way to left. Please check the screenshot below. 

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