    How do I add horizontal line to my form?  I'd like this for field grouping.

    With the use of Free Text (HTML) you can add a horizontal line to the form for grouping the fields.

    1.) Add a Free Text (HTML) field into your form.

    2.) Click the Edit HTML button

    3.) Click the HTML icon at the lower right corner of the text editor toolbar to open the HTML Editor.

    4.) Place an HTML tag <hr> to insert a horizontal line. Then click Update to close the HTML Editor.

    5.) Click Complete.

    6.) If you want to place horizontal lines to other parts of your form, you can duplicate the horizontal line you just created by clicking the gear icon  and selecting Duplicate.

    If you have any further questions let us know.

    This is old and outdated, the free html option no longer exists.

    You are right, this is an oudated workaround. We now have a widget that allows you to add horizontal line/separator. It is the Form Separtor widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/form_separator

    Also, please let me clarify that the Free Text (HTML) feature still exists, it just was renamed and changed its location. Its name now is Text and it is located under the Form Tools:

    So, it is still possible to achieve the workaround suggested before, however, it is not necessary as we already have the Form Separator widget.

    Inform us if you need further assistance with this query.

    The Form Separator widget inserts a blank column into the resulting submissions spreadsheet.

    Any way to suppress that?
