    Insert lines, shapes or boxes into the form

    Asked by tonycrowther on November 09, 2016 at 11:10 AM

    Is there any way to insert into a form:  lines, shapes, tinted boxes - any drawing tools at all?

     

    Thanks.

    You can add the Drawing Board widget to your form. Here's how: 

    Also, please check other widget related to drawing. Here's the link: https://widgets.jotform.com/category/drawing

    Hope that helps. If you need further assistance,

    That doesn't do it - it's simply freehand drawing, not straight lines, or rectangles.  Inserting a simple customisable line between fields should be a bog-standard feature for form design, surely?

    Hello again,

    Can you show me something similar to what you want? If I understand correctly, you want to put lines between fields. Here's a sample image I made in photo editor:

    This is not possible in JotForm. You can use https://www.draw.io/. After that, add the drawing on your form by embedding it as an image. We actually have an Draw.io embedder widget.

    If you want to add a horizontal line in between the fields, you can use the Basic Separator widget.

    Thank you for understanding.
