In text fields and drop down boxes as well, I would like the name of the fields (or caption) to be formatted differently than the field itself. How can I do that?
You can do that on the Font palette. Make sure that the Font palette is visible by looking under the Window file menu and making sure Font is checked. Now highlight the object you want to play with. Now on the Font palette you can change the target that you are affecting from Caption and Value to Caption by clicking on the little button that I highlighted in Blue.
