Professional and Premier FAQ
Can I keep my currently applied theme when I upgrade my form to Form Builder 5?
Yes, upgrading your form will retain your currently applied theme.
However, you will not be able to edit themes from older Form Builder versions in Form Builder 5, and you’ll see a “This theme may not be edited in Theme Editor 2.0” warning in Themes ▶︎ Browse Themes.
Please note that some features in Form Builder 5 will not work with older themes from Theme Editor 1.0 — for example, toggling borders on and off for fieldsets. We recommend you use a Form Builder 5 theme with Form Builder 5 forms.
Once you apply a Form Builder 5 theme, you won’t be able to go back to your theme from an older Form Builder version.
If you want to restore your theme, you can revert your form to an earlier revision. However, please note that restoring your revision will also restore the form content and structure from that version. Learn more about form revisions.
