Advanced Designer: Choosing 'Crimson Text' as the font-family results in broken CSS

    Asked on October 10, 2017 at 05:18 PM


    I attempted to use Crimson Text Google Font by selecting it in the Advanced > Font Options. After doing so I inspected my form and it appears the word Crimson get auto replaced by the HEX code for crimson;

    .form-all { font-family: "#dc143c Text", sans-serif; }

    I'm not sure why a replace was done by just wanted to give an FYI as it seems if the Font-Family name as a colour in it some CSS rendering will replace with its hex equivalent.

    Thank you for reporting this to us. 

    I have just checked your form I can see you have injected the CSS code to set up your font. I have also tested on my end and I cannot replicate the issue, when I set up the font it worked fine and it properly appeared when I inspected the code: 


    May you please check on your end and find if the issue still persists? 

    Please let us know how it goes.

    Hi Kevin,

    How're you setting up the Font btw? I went through with a clean form added a single element then went into the Advanced Designer to choose 'Crimson Text' from the Font Options and found the issue there in the designer as well as when I previewed.

    I didn't make any further change. YOu can view the form here;

    And I just tried with another font 'Arial Black' that also had a colour in the name to confirm it affects any font with a colour in the name;

    Hope that helps you reproduce the issue.

    All the best

    Thank you for the detailed explanation.

    Unfortunately, I cannot replicate the issue. I have created a screen capture of my test form, please check if I am doing it right to replicate your issue:

    For the "Arial Black" test:


    For the "Crimson Text" test:


    If I have done it right, please try using a different internet browser and device to test it again.

    I am using PC Windows 10 and Google Chrome on my test form.

    Thank you for the additional details. 

    The issue seems to happen only when you're  applying the font from the advanced designer, I will report it to our second level so this can be fixed, thank you for your report.
