    Making vertically compact forms...

    Asked by bobpisa on January 24, 2011 at 09:37 AM

    Hello... I see many trying to decrease vertical space. Zero px still produces vertically separated fields, too much in my requirement which is narrow (160px) contact form in column of home page.

    I have seen input boxes where the field name is initially displayed in the field input box. When the user clicks, the text disappears and the user enters the data.

    How to use input options like this?

    To put fields side by side, right click on the fields and then select Shrink.

    To have the value in the input box, select the question and then click on "Hint Example" button on the toolbar.
