    Hi there, 

    You can do this injecting CSS on to your form.

    here is a guide to help you with this:



    .form-sub-label{ color:#FFCC66;}   - change color
    The following are options to change the size of the font:

     .form-sub-label{font-size: smaller;}
     .form-sub-label{font-size: larger;}
     .form-sub-label {font-size: 150%;}
     .form-sub-label {font-size: 20px;}
     .form-sub-label {font-size: xx-small;}
    .form-sub-label {font-size: x-small;}
    .form-sub-label {font-size: small;}
    .form-sub-label {font-size: medium;}
    .form-sub-label{font-size: large;}
    .form-sub-label {font-size: x-large;}
    .form-sub-label {font-size: xx-large;}
    I hope that helps!

    If you are referring to the highlight background, use the following code:

    .form-line-active {

    background-color:#DF01D7  !important;

    Or, if you mean the error background when fields aren't field. Use this:

    .form-line-error {

    background: #DF01D7 !important;

    color: #ffffff  !important;


    Just change #DF01D7 to any HTML color you want.

    Let us know if you need anything else. Thanks!

    Hi c3rd,

    I've clone your form and made some workaround on it. Can you please take a look at this clone form and see if that's what you want to achieved?


    This is the codes I've injected into your form.



    color: white;


    .form-description {

    background-color: red;


    If you need further assistance, do let us know.

    Thank you!

    Can i use hex colors instead of just red? So i can find the right tone.

    Also, to raise a bit the font size inside there, what code i need to add?

    Thats all and sorry if i "wasted" much of your time guys!

    Yes, you can use hex codes for colors. Example: #CC0000

    For the font size, inject this codes to your form:

    .form-description-content {

    font-size: 12px;


    Adjust the value if needed.
