    Perhaps you are refering to those Header fields? They are in 'bold' or more bigger than normal body fonts since they are header.

    But if you are looking for setting to format fonts and styles, then

    1. In design mode, click on Setup & Embed

    2. Preferences

    3. Form Styles

    You will then see the means to edit the theme, font sizes and colors.

    In our Better Form guide, there are also advance technique that mentions the beautification of the form fonts.

    Please inform us if you have further question.

    In addition to what my colleague has stated, injected CSS can be used to override the default styles of the form. A declaration of font-weight: normal; would remove the bolded effect from the element(s) in question but we would need more information to provide the specific rule to effect the desired change.

    You have several forms (126 at last count) and it would help if you were to identify the form and the elements within it whose text you would like styled in a different manner and in what manner (unbolded, italicized, capitalized with small caps and so on).

    We look forward to hearing from you again.

    Many thanks for very speedy response (as usual!) .... we've managed this with injected CSS for the relevant form.
