    How can I change the background of my form?

    Asked by Martin Moes on April 05, 2016 at 10:36 AM


    I've made a form for my company, BUVA. But to make it look a little more professional, I would like to put an image in the background (which fills the whole page), on top of which all text and fields are shown. I tried to click on "Designer", but then I get the message "you are not authorized to edit this form". See the attached screenshot for more details.

    Is it possible to change the background of a form into an image? And which image size should I use then?

    Hope to hear from you, thanks in advance.

    Kind regards,

    Martin Moes

    Since your forms were created under a Guest account, the designer may not be able to load your forms.  If you register your account using the same email address you used to create your forms, your forms should automatically be placed in your registered account.  Your subscription should also be transferred.
