    You can try "Label Width" property at the toolbar.

    Lable width only changes the width of the label. I need to change the spacing between the text and the label.

    You can try changing it using "Inject Custom CSS" feature.

    The "Inject Custom CSS" is not showing up in preferences.

    It is at the very bottom of the Preferences.

    Do you have any idea what the CSS would be to alter the space between the text and the text box?

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure what you mean, so I cannot give you a CSS code.

    What I mean is I have no idea what you mean by "space between the Text and the Box".

    I guess I don't know how to explain it correctly.
    If you enter a text box you have the text that describes what goes in the box and the box that you
    enter information into. I want to be able to control the distance between the two so that I can
    line up several text boxes evenly. So if I have a text box that says "State Taxes" and then a box
    where a client would enter their taxes I want to be able to increase the space between them because
    the next entry of text will not be the same length so the form will not line up properly.
    I hope this made it clearer.

    Thanks!

    The first suggestion will do exactly what you would like. Use "Label Width" to change that.

    Note that you cannot change it per question basis. You will need to change label width for the whole form. If you need to change the label width for individual fields, you can try the "inject custom css", but there is no easy way on the form builder.

    If you need to change the label width for a particular question, I cannot provide a code here on the forum because the code will be different for each question. If you can post the URL of the form and let me know exactly which question label needs to be changed to what size, I can give you the Inject Custom CSS code.

    Please be aware that if the labels are right aligned, changing their width will have no effect on the spacing between them and their respective fields.
