    How to deactivate or disable the Form Designer tool

    Asked by Luxicom on March 03, 2016 at 05:37 PM
    I have the same problem. Why makes the Form Designer my form useless? It is not possible to work with it. Timewaster. I have a very komplex form with 80 fieldsformatted. The Designer Feature makes my complete form useless by one click. Why?

    I'm afraid that there is no way to disable the Form Designer. As my colleague suggested, if you have made an accidental change to your form inside the Form Designer, you can use your form revision history to revert it back to the previous know working version of your form:


    You can also manually remove the CSS codes that were added by the Designer, in case that you do not want to use an earlier revision of your form.

    The CSS codes which are added by the Designer are in the same place as your usual custom CSS:

    Preferences > Form Styles > Inject Custom CSS

    The codes added by the Designer will be at the top, everything above the line saying:

    /* | *//*__INSPECT_SEPERATOR__*/

    Anything above that line was added by the Designer, and anything below that line is what existed in your custom CSS section before.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know. We are here to help.
