HTML block field

In order to add a separator on your form, you will have to add a HTML block on the form. Once added, go to HTML CONTENT and select Edit text.

For complex forms, take a few moments to analyze the structure of the form. Headings should be short and on point. Improve readability and comprehension by using white space in your form’s design.

Form users will identify the main points of each section more easily and focus on the key concepts of the form.

If you need to collect a considerable amount of data from your form visitors, you might also consider creating a multi-page form.
