    Is it possible to change the font colour of labels if I am embedding my form on a dark background and black is not suitable?

    Alternatively, you may inject this custom css to your form:

    .form-label-left, .form-label-top, .form-label-right {
    color: red;

    Replace red with any HTML Color Name or HTML Color Code you prefer.

    How to Inject Custom CSS?

    The difference between this solution and the one in my previous response is that in this solution, the label colors stay the same whether in focus or not.

    Hope you find this useful.
