How To Change Your Form's Font Size

July 15, 2024

Your form’s font size is important on many levels. Similar to choosing a font face, the font size will also improve the readability and design of your form. It’s always a good idea to consider your form’s visual impact based on your target audience. Note that if it’s too small, your user might just skip submitting the form because they can’t see the text. However, choosing a larger font will also compromise the overall design of your form.

Again, your web forms should be readable on every level, so be careful about font sizes. You can change the font size in the Form Builder and Advanced Designer.
