How can I stop the text color changing automatically?

    Whenever I log on to one of my forms in the editor the text color will change from white (or whatever I last saved it as) back to the default color. This means any time that I edit one of my forms I have to re-set the font color and save it again.

    It is only a minor thing, but it can become quite irritating.

    Thanks, I have tried your suggestions but with no luck.

     

    I have made a video of the problem here: https://skiblz.com/video/718/

    thanks

    I've viewed the video and while the form builder indeed indicates that the changes are not taking effect, I just visited the form's URL and here's how it looked:


    Do the labels not appear white in your browser too?

    Incidentally, if you need the sub-labels (the smaller ones under the inputs) to be white as well, inject the following CSS:

    .form-label-left,
    .form-label-top {
    text-shadow: none;
    }

    .form-sub-label {
    color: #FFF;
    text-shadow: none;
    }

    The text-shadow declaration in each rule makes the labels (especially the sub-labels) appear sharper. Want to explore the capabilities of CSS more? Have a look at videos 4 to 6 in this series.

    If you would like further assistance with this or anything else JotForm related, we'd be happy to help.

    Incidentally, here's how to inject CSS into the form.
