    This paragraph is in a standard text box. I want to highlight the last sentence in a different color. Like this:

    Thank you for explanation.

    You can use either Free Text (HTML) fields instead of Headers or use HTML to change the color.

    For example, the following Header text:

    Financial Aid is not guaranteed. Whether any financial aid is awarded, and the amount awarded to each person, is entirely dependant upon the generosity of our donors. First-time applicants will receive preference, on a first-come, first-served basis. If we are not able to grant you financial aid, and consequently you are not able to attend, your deposit and subsequent payments to date will be fully refunded. You will be notified in early June as to whether you are awarded the amount of aid requested.

    Will be replaced with the:

    Financial Aid is not guaranteed. Whether any financial aid is awarded, and the amount awarded to each person, is entirely dependant upon the generosity of our donors. First-time applicants will receive preference, on a first-come, first-served basis. If we are not able to grant you financial aid, and consequently you are not able to attend, your deposit and subsequent payments to date will be fully refunded. <span style="color: #ff0000;">You will be notified in early June as to whether you are awarded the amount of aid requested.</span>

    Please give it a try, and let us know if you need any further assistance.

    I tried it and it seemed to work, however, I get this error message when I try to save it.

    Form data cannot be decoded.

    Odd.

    I have went in and saved that change for you.

    Can you do a check and make sure everything is working as you'd expect now?

    Maybe, logging out of JotForm and back in, and doing a full browser refresh (CTRL+F5) will help get that little gremlin out of the system.

    OK, that worked. Thanks. Is the free text (HTML) a new feature? This is a great option! Is it fully functional, to the point we can images and hyperlinks?
