    On page 2 of the following form, the field for Superintendent Fax doesn't line up vertically with the field above it. It almost looks indented.

    https://www.jotform.com/build/72623944726968 

    This happens again on the same page, after the red divider for Principal Fax.

    Again on page 3 with the Percentage of Students on Free and Reduced Lunches field.

    How can I get them to line up?

    When shrinking fields, it's important to move shrank fields to a new line if they are supposed to be rendered on a new line. Going by your form's current layout, I'm assuming you aim to have a 2 column form.

    To fix this alignment issue, you have to move the both Address Fields (System and School Address) on Page 2 to a new line:

    After moving these fields to a new line, inject the following CSS codes to your Form Builder:

    .form-line-column.form-col-3 {

      padding-left: 18px;

      padding-right: 36px;

    }

    The CSS should also take care of the Percentage of Students on Free and Reduced Lunches field.

    I placed the CSS and moved those fields to new lines, but nothing changed. If I go into the Advanced CSS, then it looks the way it should. However, when I go back to the builder, the fields are still out of alignment.

    The alignment does look correct in my colleagues copy of the form:

    https://www.jotform.com/72651267060958

    If that is the correct formatting, you can clone that copy to your account:

    If any fields specifically are still formatted incorrectly, let us know which ones and we will help adjusting those.
