    Dear Jotform team,

    since yesterday I tried to open the designer but windows are not showing right somehow small.

    Did you make an update? 

    Problem persist also on every form I tried and yes I have cleared my cookies and tried different browsers ( Chrome, Safari , Firefox ).

    Could you please let me know what happened or alternatively redirect me to older designer? It worked just fine to me.

    Please see the picture of the problem.


    Thank you so much for you help!

    I took a look at the Form Designer and it was working properly for me. Cloning your form over however has however shown me the same issue that you were experiencing.

    The issue is that one of the codes that you are using are using body element and the specific child of it to be styled, and that is what is causing the issue for the form designer.

    However, without making changes to your current code, you would only need to add this CSS to your form:

    body.supernova > div:nth-child(4) {
        left: 0;
        top: 0;
        width: auto;

    This will cancel your own code already present in there and will load the designer properly.

    I also noticed that your CSS code was incomplete - when you open the form and check the custom CSS field and go all the way down you can see "impo" being the last thing, which I closed off with:


    - so that it says important; and has a closing curly bracket }.

    The CSS above (the body one) would need to go after all the other codes in order to properly cancel the same.

    You should add the CSS to your form by following these steps: Inject Custom CSS Codes just as mentioned, do close the existing CSS and then add the new CSS after it all.

    If you are not quite sure how to apply the same, you can let us know and we can either apply the same for you or you can clone my clone:

    Perfect thanks a lot. I did not know that my code can actually influence designer tool as well.

    Now I know. Great job :)
