    I have a text field with passed values, can bold them?

    Asked by snaplash on February 24, 2016 at 01:05 PM

    I have a text field as below:

    Can I bold and increase the text in the passed values? ({clipsremain} and {minclips}) I have bolded them in the editor, but as I have custom CSS fonts added as below it negates the styling above.

    #text_1 span.replaceTag {

        font-size : 24px!important;

        font-family : Lato!important;

        font-weight : 300!important;

        color : #5f5f5f !important;

        border : none !important;

        text-shadow : none !important;

        box-shadow : none !important;

        border : none !important;



    Is there a way around this problem without splitting up the fields and aligning them?

    I have made a clone of your form and was able to bold the texts you mentioned using the 'Edit HTML' as you can see in the image bellow:

     You can view the clone HERE.

    If you clone the form and still having the problem, it might be a browser compatibility issue.

    Please let us know if that solves the problem.

    You are welcome!

    Sometimes the browser keep Web page resources like CSS in cache to make load faster. You can try clearing browser cache to see if that solve it. Also one trick used by some developers is to use private mode to avoid this. Every modern browser has this feature, it might help you when developing your form.  

    If the problem still persist please let us know so we can help you with it.
