    Hi;

    I worked on your form and came up with the below form, if that is what you are looking for then feel free to clone it and use;

    To achieve the two column look in a form, you need to use the form builder's shrink feature which allows fields to be placed side-by-side.

    For more information, please see How to Position Form Fields on the Same Line in the Create Forms section of our user guide.

    Lets know if you need further assistance.

    @stephenaxe

    I had also been working on a solution and came up with this clone. One thing to bear in mind is that the upload fields are displayed differently in different browsers. For instance, Firefox vs. Chrome:

    (Click first image to zoom to actual size)

    Also, overriding the default layout in mobile devices which have narrow width screens would require the solution discussed in this thread.

    Lastly, results of tests carried out at BrowserStack show that the layout of my clone in Internet Explorer 6 and 7 is awful but thankfully, the form is still useable.
