    I am assuming you are referring to hint text that appears when you hover over the field. You can adjust the size of the text by injecting the CSS code:

    .form-description-content { 

        font-size: 20px !important; 


    Please let us know if this helps.

    No, I am referring to HOVER text bubble which shows up beside a field. It is teeny tiny in font size and I cannot figure out how to edit it to make it more readable! It is like font size 2, if there is even such a thing!!

    You are referring to this hover text: 

    So applying the CSS provided by Victor should allow you to increase the font size of the text, try to do it, let us know if it works as you need.

    I used the CSS, however, it changed the text below not the hover text. See my attachment showing the small writing size in the hover text.

    I cloned and inspected your form and you were missing a period . before the form-description-content:
