Offer line breaks, centering, italics and input field colors for lightbox forms

I would like to see simple stuff like line breaks (i.e.
or
), centering, italic, etc. Choosing a different color of input fields (I would prefer a white font, but that does not work well with the white background on the text boxes). 

Also the light box does not scroll on my phone (android) and the field you are filling in does not scroll above the typing overlay.

Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: Lightbox signup customization: font, image, overlay, width and layout.

Hey there, Todd! I love these functionality ideas and am taking them to our Product Team to think through as we look at the next phase of lightbox forms down the road. I'll let you know their thoughts once they pass 'em back my way.

As for the scrolling trouble you're seeing, are you up for creating a new thread for us to troubleshoot? It doesn't sound like that's working properly for you, and we'd like to get to the bottom of it outside of this chat about feature requests. :) In that new thread, let us know the name of the lightbox field you're working on and the version of Android you're using, and we'll get to testing!

Hi again, Todd! I love where your head is at with all you want to achieve using lightbox forms. This is more of an advanced use case than what we're looking to do with lightbox forms in the next 12 months, so I'm going to mark this as Not Planned for now and will keep you posted with any changes to that status.

Though I totally understand wanting to do everything email marketing related from within your Emma account, building a signup form outside of Emma and connecting it to your account with our open API may be an option for you, if more tailored formatting and design options are important to your list growth goals right now.

Thank you for sharing this!

I'm with Todd on the input text; this is fairly simple and would give users so many more options. I had our lightboxes looking great before I realized that input text was also white. Any chance this could be taken into sooner consideration?

Hi friends -- Update for you here. I've marked the status for this Idea as Under consideration. While we don't have a current timeline on lightbox form enhancements, we are eager to hear more about what you'd like to see in terms of new functionality and advanced editing capabilities!

Hi Todd - I have multiple clients that are trying to embed their Lightbox code onto their site using Joomla. Could you give me some sort of direction as to how I would go about embedding a Lightbox code through the Joomla site. Thanks!
