    Hello lmelendez_jr,

    Do you mean to say that you want to change the font size and style of the autoresize textarea? 

    I did try but unable to overriding the default style. We need an built in feature/property where we should be able to change the style of the fields/labels.

    I am create a feature request on this and sending it to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as this is implemented.

    Thank you!
