Font Color on Commcare apps

Hi guys,

Is it possible to format the text on Commcare to be a different font like
maybe red or bold ?

Thanks ,
Grace

Grace,

This is actually a feature that we expect to release soon - possibly in the
next release. I’ll update this thread when we release it, we’ll be happy to
have people try it out!

Best,
Will

Hi,

Has Dimagi been able to add other font colors to commcare? If yes how can I use it.

Thanks

Augustine

Hi Augustine,

CommCare doesn't support this level of detail in text formatting, since the apps can be run in a variety of contexts it would be very difficult to ensure that apps are consistent and practical on each one with that level of customization.

There are a few ways that you can support emphasis or custom messaging, though. The two most common are including images along with question text, or applying text formatting to labels.

If you are on Android phones, one advanced mechanism you can take advantage of are Notification Labels. These are intended to provide users with special context and emphasis.
