    Asked by AprilRosePhotography on June 18, 2015 at 12:12 AM

    For Text Area, when writing in the question area, am I able to put something in the next line? 

     

    So put 'Eg. How your one year old snuggles into you..' onto another line..

    Hello,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement by adding <br> html tag in the textarea label. Please check the screenshot below on how to add "<br>" in the question label:

    Awesome, thank you!

    Is there anyway I can customize the text?

    E.g.

    - Make the font size smaller

    - Make it bold/italic 

     

    Thanks heaps!

    Yes, it is, but these field labels are really not intended to be used in that way.

    Please note that all HTML tags that you add inside the label will be removed when you edit the label next time. For example, lets say that your label is set as:

    What are some things that your family is doing right now that you want to remember? Be as detailed as you want. <br>Eg. How your one year old snuggles into you. Those adorable smiles! Sweet interactions. Your siblings love for each other.

    The next time that you go to edit the label, the <br> tag will be automatically stripped, as the labels were not designed for being manipulated in this way.

    What are some things that your family is doing right now that you want to remember? Be as detailed as you want. Eg. How your one year old snuggles into you. Those adorable smiles! Sweet interactions. Your siblings love for each other.

    You can make the text bold by using <strong>text goes here</strong> tags, and you can make it smaller by using <small>text goes here</small> tags. For example:

    What are some things that your family is doing right now that you want to remember? Be as detailed as you want. <br><strong>Eg.</strong> <small>How your one year old snuggles into you. Those adorable smiles! Sweet interactions. Your siblings love for each other.</small>

    Please note that everything marked in red would be removed if you click on the label in the Form Builder to edit it again, so I would suggest to copy the text with the tags somewhere safe, to have it for reference later on. The form label would look like this with the example above:
