    Hi there;

            To edit font style, please Inject Custom CSS Code at the end, and review the following cases for either Capitalize or UPPERCASE.

    For Capitalize:

    #first_4, #last_4 {text-transform: capitalize;}

    For Uppercase:

    #first_4, #last_4 {text-transform: uppercase;}

    Please will let us know, if you need further assistance on this, we would be happy to assist you :)


    Kind Regards;

    - Syed

    The code my colleague provided above is to change the appearance of the entered characters in the text box, but in the submissions screen you'll see the entered characters as they were typed in the form.

    If you want to force the submitted data to be also in uppercase characters then you'll need to use the full source code of your form and a custom script like the ones provided here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13155261/convert-to-upper-case-while-typing-with-some-delay

    Let us know if this helps.
