    oops.. i was searching for how to format the helper text (the grey text inside the answer field) to make it display in a google font.  I thought i was searchign the knowledge base.... Pressed return by mistake LOL

     

    separate question: some of the google fonts in the forms designer are not working for me, and some google fonts are not listed (i.e. EB Garamond and Libre Franklin)

    Hello, 

    If you want to use the Google Fonts on helper text (placeholders), you can do this (Assuming that you want to use Francois One which you have imported in your CSS):

    ===

    .form-textbox::-webkit-input-placeholder {
         font-family: 'Francois One', sans-serif !important;
    }

    .form-textbox:-ms-input-placeholder {
         font-family: 'Francois One', sans-serif !important;
    }

    .form-textbox:-moz-placeholder {
         font-family: 'Francois One', sans-serif !important;
    }

    .form-textbox::-moz-placeholder {
         font-family: 'Francois One', sans-serif !important;
    }

    ===

    This should support most browsers

    Update:

    I think this is a better example:

     

    @import 'https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=EB+Garamond';

    .form-textbox::-webkit-input-placeholder {
         font-family: 'EB Garamond', sans-serif !important;
    }

    .form-textbox:-ms-input-placeholder {
         font-family: 'EB Garamond', sans-serif !important;
    }

    .form-textbox:-moz-placeholder {
         font-family: 'EB Garamond', sans-serif !important;
    }

    .form-textbox::-moz-placeholder {
         font-family: 'EB Garamond', sans-serif !important;
    }
