I am just experimenting a little with doing some CSS tweaks, however, I can't seem to get anything to work.
I tried to find the "apps\<my app name>\css" but could not find it so I created one beneath the following directory...
C:\Program Files (x86)\Gerger\Formspider Server\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\webapps\formspider\apps
So my new directory is called...
C:\Program Files (x86)\Gerger\Formspider Server\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\webapps\formspider\apps\XXCAO_CCP\css
I then copied default.css from the following directory...
C:\Program Files (x86)\Gerger\Formspider Server\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\webapps\formspider\css\skins
to my new directory and made a few tweaks to the CSS, nothing was picked up.
So a few questions...
1) It is correct that I had to create a new directory as per above or should the directory already exists?
2) Did I get the default.css from the correct location?
3) If what I've done is correct so far, what am I missing to use a custom CSS file?

1) Yes, you need to create this path, it doesn't exist by default.
2) Yes, /css/skins is the correct path
3) Additionally, you should set custom css for your application by giving your css file name on Edit Application screen on IDE.
We're avare that both creating folder and setting css file name on IDE is weird and will find a better solution in the future releases.
Tip: You don't need to keep all default.css content in your custom css file. Just write the classes you want to override.
Tip2: Using Chrome Dev Tools or Firebug can help you enormously to find out which classes to override.
