    Hello Jotform Team!

    I don't find any possibility (even in advanced design) to change the color of the hover text background. Now it's gray, kindda invisible... I rather would choose yellow for instance. Any suggestions?

    To get this done, inject custom CSS into your form.

    Inject the following CSS and change the colour values starting with # like #ccc

    .form-description {

        border: 4px solid #ccc;

        box-shadow: 0px 2px 4px #666;

        background: #f5f5f5;


    border - changes the borders color #ccc

    box-shadow - Changes the shadow shown on the box #666

    background - changes the background color of widget #f5f5f5

    Hello Donald,

    Thanks for the tip (Hoover text background color).

    I have one more question related to Hoover text: how can I change the text (font size)? To improve the readability?

    You need to inject additional CSS code to you from shown below. Please add this code without removing the previous one.

    .form-description-content {

        font-size: 15px;


    Font size is 15px, you can increase the size, if required. Refer to the article inject custom CSS into your form.
