Can I change the format of the text?

It is possible to apply different formatting styles to the text of your forms. Changing the size, marking in bold or italics are just a few of the possible modifications in Castor.

Nonetheless, certain formatting options are only available for some of the fields. The table below presents a summary of the formatting options valid in Survey intro/outro text and Help info text:
