    How to increase the checkboxes text width?

    Asked by rlzolinas on January 03, 2017 at 11:43 AM

    I tried using .form-checkbox-item {
        width: 550px; !important;

    and the code is still untouched. I would like the info to span across the page.

    Hi Robin, thank you for contacting us.

    One way to achieve what you want is to use this custom CSS code instead of the one you mentioned above:

    .form-checkbox-item label {

        display : inline-block !important;

        width : 550px !important;

        margin : -13px 0 5px 20px !important;


    I see that you know how to inject custom CSS code to a form, but just for completeness, here is the tutorial: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    I also created a corrected form in case you would like to clone ithttps://form.jotform.com/70024608880959

    If you have more questions or need further assistance, please let us know. Thank you.

    Building off of my original question, how do I eliminate the space between items, but keep the item text long as it is. The formatting seems to be a problem. I can't figure out where I went wrong with the css.

    Hey Robin - Since this is now about a different topic and a different form too, I moved your last post to a separate thread https://www.jotform.com/answers/1202508 

    We'll reply there shortly.
