    1.How I align your zodiac sign and your gender side by side?

    I did check your form and found that you have already placed the form fields side by side. Please check the screenshot below:

    2.How do I change from square to diamond etc?

    What exactly you want to change. I would suggest you to please explain your requirement a bit more in detail and we will try to help you.


    3.How many columns do I have, though, the columns of the guide is two?

    You can add a maximum of six columns in your form. Please note that the more the number of columns, the width of form field will be smaller. Please check the screenshot below on how to increase the number of form columns:

    That seems funny.

    I checked my question again.

    I have a still problem. Let me present the gif as follows.

    >3.How many columns do I have, though, the columns of the guide is two?

    I have tried  it based on your guide, though, the problem came out as follows

    https://gyazo.com/0e3fd731c29010103c6d57f13de8da7c

    the above is from your guide

    while mine is as follows

    https://gyazo.com/3e7ba4a653e8b629ed0c726c676879d6

    That is mine does not have 

    1.Enable form columns

    2.Number of columns

    What is the distinction between them?

    Looking forward to having your reply.

    Please accept my apology for the confusion. 

    You are not able to see the form column option because you have not shrinked your form field. Please note that the form column option is only available if your form fields are shrinked. Please check the screenshot below on how to enable form column in your own form:

    Hope this helps.

    I have reverted your form back so that you can try it out yourself.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.
