    html tags and/or styling within the form

    Asked by fastlanetravel on November 30, 2011 at 09:00 AM

    I notice I can add html tags to my form, but when I edit it, they disappear.

    Is the only way to do selective bold, color, etc., via some kind of css?


    If so, do you have any instructions on that?

    Yes, by default, the form editor tries to trim any extra html you add in the labels if that's what you're trying to do.

    If you want to make them bold, please stick with Injecting CSS.

    Also, since you need to know how to pinpoint a particular form element to be affected by CSS code, this thread should show how you may use a Chrome browser to easily do that.

    If you need further help on CSS to use, please advise which form you're working on and what were you trying to accomplish.

    Thank you for using JotForm.
