    If you use "Free Text (HTML)" field on your form (located under "Power Tools") you can make some parts of the text bold. 

    Otherwise, if you would like to make all label text on the form bold, you can use Inject Custom CSS feature. Here is the code you should use:


      font-weight: bold;

    The CSS code for bolding works only for fields that haven't been shrunk. It is not applied to "Shrink" fields.


    However, if you add this code, it should do the trick:


    { font-weight: bold;

    Hi there,

    You're definitely correct englipedia. As the name implies, form-label-left will only affect fields with left aligned labels and since shrank fields has a label placed on top, it uses form-label-top and so as with right aligned labels. To apply this to all of the fields, you can also try this code below:

    .form-label-top, .form-label-left, .form-label-right { font-weight: bold;}

    Hope this helps, too. Thank you for using JotForm.
