    Why does the font color not change?

    Asked by Freemaev on November 05, 2015 at 03:29 PM

    I use a picture that I've uploaded as the background.  The font doesn't stand out as it is, so I wanted to make it darker.  I didn't see any changes even after making it black.  Just to test, I switched the font preference to red and the font color was still the same gray.


    Can you please help resolve this issue?


    Thank you!

    Please do the following and let us know if it helps:

    1. Copy the following rule to your computer clipboard:

    .form-all {
       color: black !important;

    Load the form into the form builder, click the Design button:

    Go to the CSS tab

    Paste the rule copied in Step 1 into the tab's work area (indicated by the arrow in the above screenshot)

    Save the change:


    That should fix it but if you need more help, please inform us.
