💡Please note that the above CSS modifications will be visible in your Email or Shareable link survey when it's opened in a browser, on any device.

However, these changes will not be reflected in the survey's first question if it's embedded in an email's body with the HTML code.

To apply advanced design modifications to the HTML code (and, with that, to the embedded question), first, copy the code from the survey's Share tab.

Then, paste the code into your email editor and modify the parts of the code you wish to change, such as font-family, text-align, and so on.

❗️Please remember not to delete any part of the survey links in the <a href="..."> parts of the code, as it may prevent the survey responses from being saved.
