    Please take a look of the sibling discount field by selecting only 2 of the workshops. e.g.

    This gives a very inconsistent look.  

    In addition, it is almost impossible to align the number.  Is it possible to prefix each input box with "$".  I can edit it in after I download the form. However, I want to check with you first to see if there is a good way ensure there is a "$" there and at the same time align with the decimal places.

    I have tried both number and text field, with combination of the input mask. None with provide me, i.e.  

     

    If I use text field, with or without the mask, or the currency field validation, etc.: 

    if   condx ,  put   field1 / field2 into final_field  

    where field1= 525 ,   field2= 10 . Then final_field will contain only $  52, not $  52.50 

     

    If I use a number field, I cannot get it to dollar sign to display.

     

    So, in the end, if I want : 

    - e.g. 5001 / 10  .   If I want the decimal places to show up, I have to use Number field.  

    - if I want "$" to show up, I have to use "Text" field.

    - but cannot have both.

    - SO ... my current solution is to use Number field.  Then, download the form and edit the "$" in front all input fields which need the $ sign. 

    Am I right?
