Adding forms to Xara 6

October 12, 2021

Xara offers very easy integration with Jotform through the use of widgets. To get your Jotform form into a Xara page, do the following.

Step 1: Drag the Jotform custom forms widget out of the Form Widgets section of the Designs Gallery and on to your Designer Pro 6 or Web Designer 6 web page.

The Jotform page will open in the Create New Widget: Jotform window.

Step 2: Click the new form button and follow the wizard. Select one of the options as you would normally do.

Step 3: Once you have a finished form, you’ll want to share it. Click the “Publish” button. In your Publish wizard, click “Platforms” and search for “Xara”.

You can follow the instructions mentioned in the wizard, or you can also proceed with step 4 below.

Step 4: Click Insert in the Create New Widget window. Xara Designer Pro 6 or Web Designer 6 will display a placeholder for your form. Click and drag the placeholder to the location on the web page where you want the form to appear.

Step 5 (optional): If you need to do any resizing take note that you cannot resize the placeholder using the selection handles – this will truncate your form (if you reduce it) or create empty white space to two sides of it (if you enlarge it).

To resize the form, go back to Jotform, click Setup and Embed, click Preferences, and then click the Form Styles tab.  

Once you’ve done this you’ll need to reimport the form into the placeholder, so just repeat set 4.
