In this article we'll be covering how to pre-populate a background within a sketch question. This is possible using resources and JPEG / PNG images are the two options of file types you can use. This is useful for when you have a diagram you want the user to sketch on top of.

Setting it up is really simple:

  1. In the Form Designer select your Sketch Question

2. Click on "Select Resource" for the "Background Resource" property on the right hand side of the screen and either upload a new PNG / JPEG or select a previously uploaded resource from the "File List".

3. Save your form, close and open the app on your mobile device and your sketch question should now have a background when you open it.

This concludes our overview of adding a background to a sketch question. If you have any questions or comments feel free to send us a message at
