Is there a way to shrink a form so it fits in one page when printing?

    Hi,

    I just created my first form and noticed that when I go to print it out it is on multiple pages.  Is there a way to change the format or something so that it all shows up on 1 page?  I noticed that there is a lot of wasted space when I go to print it and really want to be able to manage the format so that I can tighten it up with spacing etc. when I go to print.  (similar to what one can do with microsoft "word".)

     

    Thank you,

    Ray

    Hey Ray, due to the length of your form, there's no way to shrink it to just one page.

    What you can do as an alternative are two things:

    1. Reduce the spacing between fields

    e.g. set Question Spacing to 0

    2. And make use of Form Columns

    Complete guide: Setting-up-Form-Columns

    You can move this up a notch by widening your form's width then making it into 3 columns so it would fit a single page. Nonetheless, the main idea here is that the longer the form, the more pages it will need when printed.

    To show you this idea, here's a cloned copy of your form with 2 columns and 0 spacing https://www.jotform.com/70786082496973

    You'd see that it's still relatively long, can't be printed in 1 page, but way shorter compared to your original design.
