    The appearance of text (or any element) of a form can be changed via injected CSS, so long as you know the correct selector to use. (This can be easily discovered with a tool like Firebug but just viewing the source of the form can also provide clues.)

    There's also our Free Text (HTML) tool which has an editor quite similar to the one you would have used to post your message above. Many aspects of text in a Free Text (HTML) field can be changed: Font, size, color, style, weight and so on. Is this what you were referring to?

    I think he looks for a Textfield with a basic editor (like this one) that can be modified by the submitter. The generated HTML output of the texteditor is then the submitted data.

     

    I'm also looking for this.

    @AMAPED

    To the best of my recollection, another user had requested this but I was subsequently informed by one of our developers that allowing end users to have access to such an editor would make it easier for hackers to attack our system (or words to that effect). So, this is definitely not likely to happen in the foreseeable future.

    Thanks you for your reply!

    Ok I see.

     

    My other question: are you planning to give free users the ability to store their uploaded files on their own server?

    @AMAPED, You can actually forward submission files to your own FTP server / DropBox account.

    However, in this case you will have to delete your files through JotForm account from time to time.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
