    How can I include bold text for some words a checkbox list?

    Asked by adea2014 on April 21, 2014 at 12:40 PM

    I have a list of items with a short description after the item name.  I want to bold the item name and leave the description unbolded.  I have tried used combination.  It works when I first do it, but if I go to edit the select list or go to manage the properties the bolding turns off.  I have also used several of the select list widgets with the same results.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It is possible to inject HTML into Check Box options to get the bold text.


    <b>Item 1</b> - Text
    <b>Item 2</b> - Text
    <b>Item 3</b> - Text

    It seems to be stable when added through Options, and HTML is not being stripped on my side.

    Please give it a try and let us know if you need any further assistance.

    <b>Item 3</b> - Nice idea!
