    Hi, thank you for contacting us.

    In order to change the color to black for example, please inject this custom CSS code into your form:

    .form-textbox {

    color: black;


    We have a guide on how to inject custom CSS codes into forms here: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Still, I created an animation for you to guide you through achieving that:


    And I have also created a corrected form in case you would like to clone ithttps://form.jotform.com/70527037578967

    If you need further assistance please let us know. We will be happy to help. Thank you.
