First of all I tried with sending properties in my API json body then I am trying manually with Docusign site editor and I find that in editor it is also not working. I also have other fields and they are working fine in my API as well as Docusign Editor. But I am not able to change checkbox color and size with both methods. So I am not sure what can I do.

There is not option so re-size a checkbox, but you can configure the formatting for text size and color, which can be leveraged to change the final appearance in the document.

The attribute names are fontColor and fontSize to be included in your JSON call. You can find the entire schema here to check what attributes are available and how the spelling needs to be.

The size and color of the checkboxes will only be visible after the recipient completed signing.

Example set up:


For the recipient the view does not reflect the color and size for the recipient:

This will actually result in the following output after signature:
