    Single Choice Field>>Spread to Columns Property: not working, the form radio item width is not resizing.

    Asked by glenpoolps on February 14, 2017 at 02:56 PM

    I have used a row of radio buttons and modified the CSS so I can display 9 radio button with just numbers in one row.  The radio buttons display correctly in form builder, but do not when I preview or open the form in another browser.


    Form name is:

    I want the radio button to display as shown below as they do in builder:

    NOT like this in the preview of the same form:

    I can not identify the issue you describe, the radio buttons show the same on edit and preview mode:

    Your screenshot did not post. Make sure to load the link of this thread in your browser first: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1066102 

    Then, upload the screenshot as shown on this guide: https://www.jotform.com/answers/414264-How-to-include-screenshot-image-in-the-support-forum 

    Also, just as a suggestion, you could use an Input Table field type: https://form.jotform.com/70446892413964

    Did you not see the screen shots I included in my "answer" yesterday at 5:30??


    I have uploaded another screen shot of what I see in form builder. What causes form builder (edit) and preview to display differently?


    I will look at the use of an Input Table field, however I would still like to know what is causing the issue I am experiencing now.


    Thank you,

    I see what you mean now, it appears that the column property is not working properly, I tried it in a simply form:

    I will forward this to our back-end team. Meanwhile, try injecting the following code it your form's CSS area:

    .form-radio-item {

        width: 50px !important;
