Description: Describes how to use the Format Tab to set properties that control how your survey looks, such as font, colors, language, header and footer.

On the Format tab you'll set properties that control the look of your survey such as fonts and colors, header and footer, and the envelope for your survey.

Tip: You can click the Preview button at the bottom or left of the screen to see how the style changes you make on the Format tab affect your survey.

The Style Wizard

The Style Wizard is used to make your survey match your company Web site. It will ask for the URL of your Web site, and try to extract images and color schemes from your site for you to use in your survey. 

When you click the Style Wizard button, you are prompted to enter a Web site URL. The Style Wizard then asks you to choose those colors and images which most represent your site from the elements it has extracted. When the wizard finishes, your questionnaire automatically takes on the "look" you have chosen including the addition of your logo in the Page Header field.

Style Properties

You can set the following Style properties for your survey:


You can change any of the survey colors by clicking on the color bar next to a listed field and selecting a color from the table that displays or entering a RGB Hex value.

Tip: to specify a color as "transparent", delete the RGB Hex value, and click OK.

The following survey fields can have their colors changed. In some cases, how the color is used depends on the specific envelope you choose.

Page Header and Footer

The Page Header and Page Footer is displayed at the top and bottom respectively of each page of your survey.  You can insert any content in the Header and Footer including text, images (i.e. your logo), and hyperlinks.  Use the Formatting Toolbar to format text in the Page Header and/or Footer sections.

To insert a logo or image, see How do I add a logo to my survey?. Note that logos and images must reside on a Web page to be extracted and incorporated into the Page Header or Footer field.
