    You have to open the form in the form designer and click the field, an option to change the field properties should appear. For example:


    For changing the font weight to bold, you can inject the following custom CSS codes:

    .form-textbox, .form-textarea, .form-dropdown {

    font-weight: bold;


    Here's how to inject the custom CSS codes: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes. You have to add the codes at the very bottom of the existing ones.
