    Feature request: Allow cusotm css code injection in Narrative Field widget instead of using external css file.

    Asked by PinkIguana on October 21, 2014 at 09:25 PM

    I'm using the Narrative Field Widget but I want to change the font to Verdana. I tried to add the font script into the CSS field of the widget but nothing happened. How can I achieve this?


    I also want the required astric to line up next to the first work in my sentence rather then above, is that possible?

    Hello PinkIguana,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    Upon checking your form, I found that you have added the custom css code directly in the widget. Please be noted that "Narrative Field" widget expects external stylesheet URL and injecting custom css code will not not work. You should add the URL of an external stylesheet. Please check the screenshot below:

    Here are the steps you should follow:

    1. Create a css file, add the required css code.

    2. Upload this css file in your server and grab the file URL.

    3. Add this file URL in your narrative field widget and that should solve your problem.

    Thank you!

    Is it possible to change the font style without having to add a css file to my server?

    Hello PinkIguana,

    As mentioned earlier, the "Narrative Field" widget only expects the external css URL and it is currently not possible to inject custom css code.

    I am sending a feature request to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update form them.

    Thank you!

    The Narrative Fields Widget will now work with the font you have set on your form: 

    No need for any kind of CSS injection - it will simply integrate seamlessly on your form. 

    The CSS box will not be supported for newly added widgets. 

    We are trying to have widgets respond to the settings on the form builder. This feature, while still in development, supports the font-type, width and height settings. 

    We'll be announcing the updates on our periodic bulletins - kindly check as often as possible. 

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.
