    Do you want to populate the another field in the same form or other form?

    If you want to populate the field of another form, you can take advantage of our "URL Parameter" feature. You may like to take a look at the following guide, which should help you how to pass data from one form to another: https://www.jotform.com/help/351-how-to-automatically-pass-form-data-to-another-form

    If you want to manually populate the data in another form, you can take advantage of our "Prefill" feature. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you: https://www.jotform.com/help/1807-how-to-prefill-form-fields-with-data-from-another-form-with-form-prefill

    I want to populate a field in another form.


    I am currently using the Prefill feature and want it to be filled in in Bold.

    Is that something I can do?


    Thank you

    I am using form prefill.

    I understand injecting CSS to change the font weight of the question. Is it possible to do that with an answer prefilled from another form?

    Please note that you can inject custom CSS code to display the prepopulated value in bold font. Please let us know the form and the field that you want to prefill in bold, and we will help you with the required custom CSS code.

    We will wait for your response.

    I did check your form and found that you have already injected the following custom CSS code:

    #input_42 {

     font-weight : bold;

    }

    When the field is populated, it will display the content in bold. Please check the screenshot below:

    Please test your form by clicking on the following URL and see if the pre-populated value is being displayed in bold font or not: https://form.jotform.com/211971938626062?boldFull=John%20Doe

    It seems you are using Smart PDF form and want to display the bold text in the original PDF document. Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the font weight of the form fields data in original PDF document.

    Please note that you can add a new PDF document template in "PDF Editor" which will allow you to customize the fields to display bold text. Please check the screenshot below:
