    Does all styling require code?

    Asked by Christopher Anthony on August 10, 2015 at 09:40 AM

    Hi -- 

    We transitioned to JotForm well before the retiring of FormsCentral.  Now that we are operational with this -- we are trying to create forms -- however, changing font color, font, header color -- seem to ALL involve coding.  Is this the only way to do it -- or can we create forms simply -- like we did with FormsCentral.  We may have to discontinue our subscription if this is the case -- we just do not have any coding experience, and creating forms is taking way too long for us......any info or ways around this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Most styling changes can easily be made in the Form Designer:


    Font styles, colors, form layout, almost anything can easily be changed using the form designer, it does not require any coding. 

    If you need to change very specific elements, one specific label for one question for example, this would require a small bit of code.  If you run into anything you personally can't change to your liking, let us know and we will be happy to help you make the changes.

    Great! Thanks—however, when I try to use this function it says “The page at www.jotform.com says: you are not authorized to edit this form.” Please advise, thanks!

    You can open our Form Designer when you are editing your form. When you are editing a form, simply click Setup & Embed > Designer.

    Your Designer should open, where you will be able to edit the styles on your form:

    Please let us know if you have any issues opening the Designer from within your forms, and we will try and help you resolve any issues that may be causing it.
