    How to unbold part of the question?

    Asked by igrzysk on June 29, 2015 at 02:39 PM



    I would like to have a question in which only a part of the text in bolded.


    For example.

    How old are you? (Be honest)


    First part bolded but second part not. How can I achieve this?

    That's possible by declaring parts of the question as an element. Then using CSS to unbold that part.

    Here's an example, in the question or field name, wrapped the parts by <span> separately.

    <span class="boldThis">How old are you?</span> <span class="unboldThis">(Be honest)</span>


    Now we can declare specific styling on specific parts of the question because it has class names on it. Open your Form Designer and add this custom CSS code.

    .boldThis {

        font-weight : bold !important;


    .unboldThis {

        font-weight : normal !important;




    I hope that helps. If you need more assistance on this, please let us know.
