The basic form is not very flexible compared with the advanced form builder. you cannot place the elements where you like. However, you are able to change the styling of your web form quite easily (background colors, its fonts and its border ).
Once you create a basic form its default look is rather gray and neutral. In order to change it you will need to:
1- Go to the “pool” or “flow” modes and press on the ‘style’ button in the “form settings” section on the right to change the layout style.
2- A style window will then open, displaying the form’s style properties divided in to 4 main sections: Header, Footer, Form Body and Border. Each section represents another part of the form and it contains properties like font family, font color etc.
3- After you change the properties press on the ‘ok’ button and save the form. The published form will change it’s appearance accordingly.
*It is recommended to make the style changes while keeping the published form open, and checking it with every style change made.

One of the design tools available in your email form builder is the font style. You are able to change font size, weight (if it is normal or bold), italic, underlined…and you can also change the font color.
In order to change font color in the form builder you can use:
1- The form settings – font color field.
Through this field you can determine the font color of all the elements in the form at once.
The field enables you to enter any color by specifying its number (such as #ffffff) or its name (such as red).
2- The ‘font color’ icon in the upper toolbar – style section
This option allows you to change each element’s font color separately. In this option you can only pick from a list of colors given to you.
All you need to do is select the element and press on the icon. a small window will appear and you will be able to pick a color from the list.
3- The element settings – font color field.
This option, like the first in the form settings, allows you to enter any color you want. The only difference is that the font color in this option is only applied to a certain element and not to the entire form.
