Multiple Choice: Text wrapped in HTML placed before plain text.

    I got a request from a client to bold some of the text in a checkbox field, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do so. I know I can target a whole line with CSS, but targeting a specific part of that text isn't possible with CSS. The areas underlined in orange are what I want to bold.

    I also tried to add some HTML (<strong> tags) to the field, but that caused the text to shift to the beginning of the field for some reason.

    1634150090_616726cac74ee_Screen Shot 202While typing this question out, I did find a way to do it. Basically, if you wrap the whole line of text in a <span> tag, it will keep the bolded text in place. So, for those who don't know HTML, it looks like this:

    <span>This is a sentence with <strong>bold text</strong></span>

    I just wanted to bring this to your attention so that perhaps a more intuitive solution can be implemented.

    Howdy Jessyca_team,

    I apologize for any inconvenience. You should be able to include only the <strong> tags. I have tested this issue with a new form and I was not able to replicate the issue you've described. However, I am able to encounter the issue with a clone of your form. It seems there is a bug in the form.

    At this time I have created a new ticket for our developers to investigate this issue. Please understand that we are unable to provide an ETA for when this issue will be resolved, though, you will be notified on this thread once there is an update.

    In the meantime, please continue to use the workaround you've discovered.

    Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention!
