    It is possible to change the border color in the hover text box by Injecting Custom CSS. To do that inside of your Form Builder select Setup & Embed tab, then click on Preferences, then select Form Styles tab and inside of Inject Custom CSS field at the bottom of existing code paste this code:

    .form-description {

    border: 4px solid #000000;


    .form-description-arrow {

    border-color: transparent #000000 transparent transparent;


    After adding this code your hit text border should look like this.


    You need to change Hex values of background (e.g. #000000) for some other color of your choice. You can find Hex values of color on this link: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_colorpicker.asp 


    Let us know if you need further assistance.
