    Form losing formating

    Asked by bmwx21 on July 06, 2012 at 04:12 PM

    A fomr that I am creating seems to be losing the formating somehow. In previous post I asked about changing the sizes of the spaces between one of the fields and it was fixed, but now it seems to have gone askew again and I am not sure how to refix it.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You have the following custom CSS code injected to your form:

    .form-checkbox-item {
    width: 200px;

    However, this CSS is overridden by default form CSS. In order to solve the problem you will need to add !important to your CSS.

    .form-checkbox-item {
    width: 200px !important;

    Please give it a try, and let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Hi, without using the injected CSS, I can also workaround on this by simply adjusting the checkbox option values...

    The Banking/Lender Relationship value is too long... so I move it to last.

    That is, if this checkboxes values is not using any grouping or sorting pattern.
