    Order check box options alphabetically in two columns.

    Asked by aecf on December 15, 2016 at 01:52 PM


    I have options for ppl to check a selection in alpha order but the columns are splicing it. 

    The 2-column list of topic areas that is alphabetized across first rather than down seems strange to me. I recommend changing it to be alphabetized down first before continuing into the second column.
