    2) So one suggestion would be move the error message onto the screen, if that's possible, rather than to the end of the form.

    Hi,

    You can check our Form Designer Tool, there are some templates for the error style that you can use. Here's the steps.

    1. First, open the Form Designer Tool

    2. Inside the Designer, click any form, click the "Design"->Color Scheme->Click the gear icon for the "Simulate Error State".

    3. You will then have the options to style it. Choose one of the templates.

    4. Here's the available templates that we have.

    5. And this is how the form looks like with a different style, I choose the one that shows the error above the field, and the color is black.

     

    If you are familiar with custom CSS codes, that will give you freedom to extensively change the design of the forms. 

    I hope that helps.

    Thanks for the tip. But when I hope up the Design à Color, I only get Simulate Highlight which gives me the ability to choose a background, not the error…

    Hi,

    If you want to change the error style, just click the "Error State Templates".

    If you want to change the error message itself, you can do that by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/61-How-to-Change-Form-Warnings.

    Do let us know if I misunderstood your concern.

    Thanks.
