    Shrinking fields is still possible, the option is now under the options menu for the field:

    This is due to the theme applied to your form.  It is setting the width of all fields to 100%.  If you remove the theme, it will then allow for placing fields side by side:

    Since I am not familiar with the theme you are using, I cannot say what the CSS was previously.  It currently forces the widget of fields to 100%. 

    It uses an !important tag so it would override any further CSS that is added.

    If you have further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.  If you use a different theme or the default form theme, it will allow for placing fields side by side.
