    Can you change font color within a question label?

    Asked by CaliforniaAITC on February 23, 2017 at 02:37 PM

    I have a question and I want to "highlight" a certain segment of the qustion. When I went to change the font color, it changed the entire question. Is there a way to just change a few words?

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, using HTML tags in the label is not allowed in Form Builder V4 due to security reasons. However, you can still add HTML tags in Form Builder V3. Here's a guide:

    1. In Form Builder V3, select the field and then click the "properties" icon.

    2. In the Question Text, you can wrap the text with a font tag. Here's an example:

    3. Click the "Save" button when you're done. Here's the result:

    You can change the Form Builder version in the Account Settings. Here's the link: https://www.jotform.com/myaccount/settings.


    You can just revert back to V4 after making some changes.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
