Thank you very much for your answer. Unfortunately this doesn't work with Formidable's dropdown fields.   I opened a support ticket and this was the response:   ————————   Unfortunately that isn't as easy as it sounds to style a dropdown for only a specific value. The select uses the "color" CSS attribute for the text color and unless we started toggling on and off a class that indicated the select was in a "placeholder" state or not there really isn't an easy way to distinguish the placeholder from another selectedoption.   You could probably achieve a specific use case with some custom JavaScript but I'm concerned any custom code for this would end up missing some edge case.   —————————   However, I saw that in another form builder (Forminator) they did give a solution to a user, but I don't know how to implement it in Formidable:
