    Adding lines and descriptive text to form

    Asked by SierraMoms on December 09, 2015 at 02:25 PM

    I'm new to JotForm and I'm having trouble finding a basic feature in this robust platform! I am trying to add a separator line (<hr> or similar) and a heading and/or paragraph of explanatory/descriptive text in the middle of the form. How do you do this?

    Hello, and welcome to JotForm! :)

    You can add horizontal lines and descriptive texts by using our Text field, found under Form Tools in the sidebar to the left of the Form Builder:

    You can add a heading by using the Heading field, found under the Quick Tools in the same sidebar:

    When it comes to creating a horizontal line in the Text field, you can do it by using the Horizontal Line button that is visible when you are editing the Text field. You can see a more thorough explanation with images here:


    Please let us know if you need any assistance with setting it up, or kindly open a separate thread for any other questions you may have, and we'll be happy to help get everything set up the way you like.

    Thank you for using JotForm, I hope you enjoy using our platform.
