    I have tested your form and I was able to replicate mentioned issue. I also noticed that required error message in also overlapping labels of other fields as well if they are not filled. 

    You can move required error message by by Injecting Custom CSS.  Inside of your Form Builder select Setup & Embed tab, then click on Preferences, then select Form Styles tab and inside of Inject Custom CSS field at the bottom of existing code paste this code:

    .form-line-error .form-error-message{

    top:35px!important;

    }

    After you add this code you form, required error message will be shown like this. 

    ON my cloned form I have added mentioned CSS code. Here is my cloned form: https://form.jotform.com/60965107613960 

    Feel free to clone it.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks BJoanna - Those are good fixes... how about the font color in the matrix table labels? See about how they are dark grey and unreadable in the error state?

    Simply add the bellow CSS at the bottom of existing code should fix it. 

    .form-line-error{

        color: #ccc;

    }

    Actually, for the theme I’m using, what’s the CSS to format the Other Field input to white text, to match the label font color?
