    Font color in text fields is white, background black

    Asked by julieconant on October 22, 2015 at 12:28 PM

    For our Health Questionnaire form, the font color of the text in the text boxes is white with a black background. We would like the background to be white and the text to be black. In the form editor, I can find where to change the background color, but not the text color. Please advise me on how to edit this.

    The theme applied to your form added CSS to change the input color to white.  I updated this line in the CSS:


    From white to black and the form showed properly.  Here is my test form:
