Change text size in field

    I have created a form with standard fields. When I type into the field, the text that appears is very small. How can I change the size of that text, the text that someone types into the field?

    Please look at this image:

    Do you have a link to your form? Most likely your theme's CSS is making the text small and would have to be overridden, and I would have to see your site's code to be able to accomplish this.

  4. David, try dropping this CSS snippet into your theme's stylesheet (you can change the font-size to be whatever you'd like):

    [css]
    .gform_wrapper input[type="text"], .gform_wrapper input[type="url"], .gform_wrapper input[type="email"], .gform_wrapper input[type="tel"], .gform_wrapper input[type="number"], .gform_wrapper input[type="password"], .gform_wrapper textarea {
    font-size: 14px !important;
    }

  5. I am having the same problem. The default text size is way to small and it's the same on sites I have with both Thesis and Headway where I have changes the theme's default body text to 14 and 16. Right now I'm concerned about the headway sites I have. With headway it's not as simple as copying the code above and pasting it into the stylesheet (there's nothing in that stylesheet).

    How do I change the text size using the headway theme (I have the latest version 3.2.3). Keep in mind that I'm not a programmer or advanced in coding, I'm simply an internet marketer that knows a little (very little) about manipulating some code.

    The code that Rob placed earlier should work, you just have to find where to place custom CSS in your theme. I'm not familiar with where it goes in Headway, but most themes have a style.css or custom.css that you can place code into.

  9. I found that place and it still doesn't work there. I guess I have to ask the people at Headway.

    They'll be able to direct you to the best spot to put custom CSS. Where did you find/try?

  11. Is there a way to make these font size changes the default for all forms created?

  12. That style declaration would be for all forms. The selectors are generic and widespread enough to cover all Gravity Forms textual inputs.
