    How to align the matrix field and change the column and row color?

    Asked by arkhosxx on March 21, 2017 at 10:54 PM


    Good evening, I have a problem, when I put the table and I type the options. It keeps coming off the form.

    As you can see the image below, it is coming off the form.


    Another question would be, if it is possible to change the color of the table options only. Because it is in a very light color. Only in the table, if possible......


    thank you.

    Regarding the width, I had a hard time adjusting that since you used a theme so I'm not able to apply CSS, but I'll check that more.

    Regarding the changing of the color. Here is the CSS code to change headers of columns and rows:

    .form-matrix-column-headers {



    .form-matrix-row-headers {



    You should insert it in the Custom CSS field:

    And if you want to change the color of the table itself please paste this CSS:




    Here is how it will look like:

    I'll get back to you for the table width.

    Thank you!

    Since I couldn't manage to change the width please try to insert this CSS:

    div#cid_58 {
        margin-left: -30px;
    It will move the table to the left:
