    Inconsistant Font sizes across a form.

    Asked by Steve99 on January 13, 2014 at 12:48 PM


    It has come to my attention that in the current Jot Form forms the font size in a 'text area' box is now different from the rest of the form as defined in the 'Form Style' >'Font Size'.

    I have two forms where the font size in the 'text area' is about 20pts, but the rest of the form is set at 12pts.

    Do I now have to resort to css to get these forms to display correctly, or is this another 'improvment' to the software?

    If so, please advise me of suitable code.

    Thank you for telling us this. I have measured the font-sizes and it is indeed slightly larger from the rest of the fonts. Though I am not sure if this is an improvement or a bug in our system. However, you may use this custom CSS code:


    font-size:12pt !Important;


    To make all text area boxes set to 12pt. However, after further test, I think it is using a different font.


    you can also use this CSS code to change their font style:


    font-family: Arial !Important;



    Please see this guide on How to Inject Custom CSS Codes. If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you

    Thank you for your assistance, consider the issue fixed.

    I have to say that for a product that's supposed to be "user friendly" the need to insert css into a basic form is odd.
