    How can we change the text color so it is shown as black on white background form?

    Asked by pardop1 on January 22, 2016 at 12:59 PM

    Hi - having trouble getting text to appear as black on a form. Cannot find any code that is causing the problem. It looks fine in the editor, but when viewing form to complete, text in white and cannot see. Cannot figure out what is causing the white font color. Here is the form https://form.jotform.com/60138993288973

    You can use the 'Designer' button at the top menu of the form builder to change your form styling.

    As Huberson mentioned, the Form Designer is your friend for this.

    It will allow you to quickly change the font style and color (and much more).

    As he mentioned it is accessed at the top in the toolbar by clicking on Designer option:

    Now, what I suggest is to check out our nice (short and simple) tutorial on changing various details about fonts on this video:

    Form Designer Episode 2 - Fonts

    That is part of our Video Course: Form Designer Basics

    Do of course let us know how it goes and if you have any issues or questions and we would be happy to assist with the same :)
