    How do I change the entry text Font?

    Asked by Traceysm on May 16, 2017 at 10:49 PM

    The font is a white colour and so is the background.  When users try to complete the form, the letters cannot be seen.

    How do change the font?  

    P.S. I used a standard template and cloned it.  I have also changed the background colour to light grey so that you can see the white text if you try to complete a field.

    You can change the input text color in the advanced designer.

    1. First, load your form into the advanced designer https://www.jotform.com/build/71348480721860/design

    2. In the designer, click the textbox field and change the font color in the right panel.

    Example, if you are going to click the text box field, any changes you made into the textbox styles panel will be applied to all the textboxes in your form. 

    Alternatively, you can inject custom CSS codes to your form to change the input text colors. You can use the following.

    .form-textbox, .form-textarea, .form-dropdown{
