How to Change Your Form's Font Size

Changing the font size of your forms couldn’t be more important. Knowing who your audience is will help you choose the right font size to use on your forms. Let’s say you’re dealing with elderly people. Would you still use a 12-point font size? Your web forms should be readable on every level, so be careful about font sizes. If you don't know what to pick, go with 12 - 14 pixels.

Step 1: Opening the Form Designer Tool.

In your form builder, you should be able to see the icon shown in the screenshot below:

That should open the basic window for the Form Designer Tool. From there, you can edit the font size under the "Styles" tab.

Step: Opening the Advanced Form Designer Tool.

You can also use the advanced form designer tool to change the font size. In the same settings page, scroll down and you should be able to see the "Advanced Designer" button.

In the Advanced Designer Tool under the "Design" tab, open the "Font Options" section. From there, you can change the font size of the form.

The Advanced Designer Tool allows you to see the changes in real-time, here's a screencast showing the changes on my form when editing the font-size.

Make sure to hit the save button in the Advanced Designer Tool to apply the changes. 

That’s about all it takes to change the size of the fonts on your forms. Changing the font size to fit your audience is crucial. Sometimes small changes can lead to big results. If you have any suggestions, comments, or difficulties, please comment below.

    I think I need to make more question more specific - I would like to know how do I change the font weight for specific words in the questions on my form, and not ALL questions? How do I do this?

  • eyeo


    I've gone to your Forum page to find out how to change font weight, e.g. make fonts bold, but all they say there is about adjusting font style and size etc, I still can't see anything specifically about making fonts bold in the questions on my form and I need to do this.

    Please help point me in the right direction, thanks!

    Kind Regards,

    Hi. I'm trying to change the font size on my questions to 14 pt. But when I do as shown on your help page it only changes the font size of the title at the top. I want the font on my questions to 14 as well. Thanks.

    I want to change the font size on certain controls, not for the whole form.
    I also want to add labels that don't have associated fields and are smaller than headers.
    This product would be so much cooler if the interface were more flexible.

    this appears to be instructions to older version. I cannot find such settings.

  • shubhac

    I did as told and I am not seeing any form designer tools - I am seeing the ability to change the font but not increase the font size - has this feature been disabled? Or is it for paid accounts only? Thanks

  • marcpuleo

    This information is not helpfull. I want to change a font in one field not the whole document

  • hadar.reshef

    why don't I have those options?
    only "themes" and "custom"...

  • silverthreadstudiofive

    Is it possible to print the form I made in a readable size?

  • billylevine2003gmailcom
