    How do I format drop-down answers' spacing and format text in drop down?

    Asked by auspex1 on May 12, 2015 at 08:07 PM

    Hello JotForm,

    Can you please help me to do the following:

    1.       How do I make the text within the drop down options bigger?  The text is currently pretty small.  I can see how to change the text size and format of the questions, but not the answer options.


    How do I format drop down answers on my last question so that they could look like this (and people can pick one of the cities):


    ·         Anaheim

    ·         Orange

    ·         San Diego


    ·         Boca Raton

    ·         Miami


    Rather than the way it currently looks:

                    California- Anaheim

                    California- Orange

                    California- San Diego

                    Florida- Boca Raton


                    Florida- Miami



    Thanks Jotform!

    Hi auspex1, 

    Thanks for contacting us.


    I have moved your question number 2 to another thread since we can only answer one question per thread. 


    For your question number 1, you can change the size of the text of the drop-down options by injecting the CSS below:

    .form-dropdown {

     font-size: 18px;


    You can change the font-size value to suit your need.


    To inject CSS to your form, please follow instructions below.


    If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us.
