    Using CSS code but can't get rid of extra spacing

    Asked by ilutheran on July 10, 2012 at 10:13 PM

    Please take a look at my TEST TEST form. I have tried 3 different procedures suggested in other questions on your Forum to have the extra space taken out between the checkbox selections under the #1 - LEADERSHIP MINISTRY column, so that it would end up being closely spaced like the items under #2 - FINANCE MINISTRY currently are. None of the CSS code or Field Style changes I've tried as suggested by your support personnel are having any effect.

    I'm trying it this way because I would like to set up each checkbox choice as a separate question on my form so that when I export to excel, they will each be in their own cell.

    Thanks for whatever help you can provide!

    Use this:


    #label_56, #label_57, #label_58, #label_59{

    display:none !important;


    #id_5.form-line, #id_56.form-line, #id_57.form-line, #id_58.form-line, #id_59.form-line{

    margin-top:-6px !important;

    margin-bottom:0px !important;


    Inject that to your form, that should work ;)

    Thanks, that worked well for that set of checkbox questions. However, after looking over the technique you recommended we decided not to go ahead and re-format our whole survey in this same way because it would be quite laborious to do so, and every time we would want to add more checkbox options to our survey someone would really need to know what they are doing to get it to look right.

    I will reiterate what many others on this Forum have already requested... please allow the data that comes from a single checkbox question with multiple choices checked to be exported into individual cells in Excel. That way we no longer have to do large amounts of converting of fields and data everytime we load the downloaded data from JotForm into Excel.

    Thank you for your help and your development team's consideration of this important issue!
