    How can I get the columns to line up properly

    Asked by RachelG2 on May 10, 2017 at 09:39 AM

    Can anyone explain what is happening here and how to fix it? I enabled the form to have 2 columns in the advanced designer then went back to my builder and started to shrink the different questions. The first 4 worked fine and lined up nicely then when I shrunk the 5th one it refused to sit lined with the left hand column like the other 2 on top. I kept shrinking the rest and yet it still wouldn't sit properly and all the other questions starting lining up it. This is really annoying me, I have no idea why its doing this or how to sort it out and I really want to have the form laid out with 2 columns so if anyone knows what to do please help.

    To fix the issue you are having, I would suggest that you enable the "Move to a new line" option of every field that you would like to be placed on the left side of your form just like what is shown in the screenshot below.

    The "Move to a new line" option is found in the field's Properties under Advanced.
