How to change the font color in your email form

One of the design tools available in your email form builder is the font style. You are able to change font size, weight (if it is normal or bold), italic, underlined…and you can also change the font color.
In order to change font color in the form builder you can use:
1- The form settings – font color field.
Through this field you can determine the font color of all the elements in the form at once.
The field enables you to enter any color by specifying its number (such as #ffffff) or its name (such as red).
Or
2- The ‘font color’ icon in the upper toolbar – style section
This option allows you to change each element’s font color separately. In this option you can only pick from a list of colors given to you.
All you need to do is select the element and press on the icon. a small window will appear and you will be able to pick a color from the list.
Or
3- The element settings – font color field.
This option, like the first in the form settings, allows you to enter any color you want. The only difference is that the font color in this option is only applied to a certain element and not to the entire form.

How to change your email form’s width and height

Usually the size of the form is not important unless you wish to embed the email form in a specific area of the webpage – in this case you will have to determine the exact height and width of the email form so it doesn’t get cut.

Following are steps to change your email form’s width and height:
1- Enter the form in the email form builder.
2- Go to the ‘form settings’ on the right.
3- enter a different width and height.
* if you are trying to contract the form size when there are elements in it you may not be able to do so if there are elements in the way. If this is the case, try to move/change elements size to allow the wanted contraction.
4- press on ‘apply’.
5- save the form.

** please note that if you change your form’s dimensions after it has been embedded you will need to publish it again and replace the current generated code with the new one.
