    Can't Change font color in Form Builder

    Asked by Masalamedia on January 31, 2013 at 07:23 PM

    I  keep putting in a custom color (#645142) to match my website, but after hitting SAVE, the color reverts to #555555.

    I can use the color picker to randomly select a hue from the color palette, but can't seem to enter my own value.

    It will let me type in some color values, but the second I  click the COLOR icon in the formatting bar again, the color reverts to a previous slection! Other values I manually type (known valid) won't stick at all.

    Same behavior in Safari and Chrome. All browser caches cleared, etc

    You're quite right. I just tested the font color picker on one of my own forms and it simply refuses to save the change. I'll submit a ticket on this. In the meantime, you can inject the following CSS to achieve the desired result:

    .form-all {
    color: #645142 !important;
    }

    Thanks for looking into it and for the workaround. I assume that CSS will override anything I put in the Form Builder color picker?

    Yes, that's because injected CSS is inserted lower in the code than all of the other CSS (except for inline). You can see this in the form's source.

    This article explains how it all works.

    Hello,

    We have fixed this bug today. Custom HEX values can now be entered (and saved) via the color picker tool.

    We'd appreciate it if you could test it out and let us know what you think.

    Kind regards
