Unable to set font size for reference selector

Hi everyone, I was trying to increase the font size of the text displayed in the reference selector by using the ‘Style’ property in the ‘Appearance’ tab. This seems to work for text widgets but is not working for reference selectors. Am I missing something or doing something wrong? My Mendix Studio version is 9.8.1 but there was no option for that in the dropdown so I am mentioning it here. Any help would be appreciated.

I strongly recommend that you don't use "Style" in Mendix, it makes your app difficult to manage on the front-end.

In any case, it is better to use a CSS Class and implement it correctly. Here you will find documentation about the front-end part of Mendix: https://docs.mendix.com/howto/front-end/

You could try using a Class from Mendix Atlas Design Systems on your reference selector eg use "h1" as Class and your font size will increase. (https://atlasdesignsystem.mendixcloud.com/p/texts)
 However, the problem is not necessarily in the size of your text but also the size of your Reference Selector. Look, after applying the class, my text does want to get bigger, but it is not possible in the Ref selector:
