How to edit custom embed

I'm trying to customize an email collection element. I really only need to change the font and the text color. I'd like to keep the green, but I need the black and grey text to be a lighter color. I just figured out you're supposed to click on where it says "edit custom embed", so I think I'm on the right track. But nothing I type actually has any effect on how the embed is displayed. What exactly should I type in there?
(I started another thread yesterday about not being able to uncheck the show agreement checkbox. I can't wrap my head around that one either.)
Thanks a lot!

    Hey Paul, you should be able to override the CSS styles in the custom embed override. Here's a copy and paste from another thread on here:

    You'll likely have already selected either a dark theme or light theme. You'll know because you'll see one of these two tags:


    I'm going to give you the CSS to override the dark theme, but if you used the light theme, just switch out the word dark for light.

    The CSS:

    <style type="text/css">
    body.dark input[type=submit], body .button {
       background: black ;
       color: white;
       font-family: "Courier New", Courier, monospace

    body.dark input[type=submit]:hover, body .button:hover{ background: white; color: black; font-family: "Courier New", Courier, monospace } </style>
    Make sure you place this code right before the tag—beneath the linked stylesheets.

    You can swap out the colours using colour names or hex codes. For some examples, look here:

    And you can switch out the font using either web safe fonts such as these:

    Or google fonts:

    Hopefully that helps!
