    Change Font Size Of Text Entered Into A Field

    Asked by ronshuller on January 21, 2016 at 11:08 AM

    How can I change the font size of the text that someone enters into a field?


    I do not want to change the text size of the label, only the manually entered text entered by someone using the form.

    If you want to style the input value on the email field, you can use this custom CSS code for that form:

    #input_30 {

        font-size:18px !important;

        color: yellow !important;


    You can paste it under your CSS tab in your Form Designer Tool. However, I noticed that you have an error on your CSS code, please do fix it to avoid further problems.

    I'm not sure if there's an attribute "font-color", it would be safe to use "color" only. Also, you're missing the ":" in between.


    This is how it looks like in my end: https://form.jotform.com/60205950242951. Noticed that the input value is now larger and the color is yellow. You can of course change the styling depending on your own preference.

    Let us know if that works.
