    How to add columns in form?

    Asked by garymichael on March 31, 2017 at 03:43 PM
    2.  What's the best way to allowing 3 or 4 columns?  Should I create the columns in the style editor before I start adding text boxes?  It seems that would be better than trying to move things around later?

    Yes I know how to do that. I'm referring to the "horizontal space between
    the fields" Look at my form clone of clone to see the space between them
    horizontally, I know how to do the vertical.

    Yay!!! I think might have figured it out. Check out my clone of clone
    contact form...
    I had to remove the columns to "0" or "1" > then added the padding-right
    and padding-left.
    Hope this works when I add other fields.

    I'm not sure if I'm checking the correct form, but on this one seems that you have managed to address your question on transparency of the background: http://www.jotform.us/form/70895149181161

    However if this is not yet addressed, please let us know.

    I also noticed that I cannot find your contact page so I'm not sure how the form appears on your page: http://creativefitsolutions.com/contact.html. If you have an updated link and still with the parts of the form pending to be resolved, please let us know.

    Thanks.

    Haha... yeah I think I did... I just checked the black blank checkmark in
    the designer. But I'm assuming that's only for white background?? What is
    it's grey or another color, it should be transparent.

    Yes I did thanks, I have another question:

    I was considering Transloadit, so my clients can upload their video files for me to post on our network.  But will they need an account on Transloadit?  What could I use that would allow them to simply upload multiple files?  I tried the regular file upload but the button text is weird when you add the multiple file feature, so I deleted it.

    The transparent setting on your form should handle all types of background. So if it's showing something, please let us know. 

    For your other question about transloadit, I have moved it on to a different thread. We'll respond to you on the thread where it has been moved to in a short while.

    Thanks.

    Normally, the default background setting on browsers is white. So even if the browser is set to transparent, the white background will reflect on your view. You will see the transparent setting of your form to be effective if you embed your form to your webpage, especially if your page has a colored background setting.

    Regarding your file upload concern, just in case you would like to get back some space allocation on your account, you will just need to delete file submissions with attached files to it. About the 25mb space you are referring to, can you tell us more about it? I'm not sure if you are referring to a guest account. If so, perhaps you would like to create a separate free account for it. Free accounts have 100mb space allocation for file storage.

    Thank you also for the kind remark. We surely appreciate it :)

    All the best.
