    I like this software very much, but I have a question. Please look at my form at 
    https://form.jotform.com/73155633484157. I would like to place two fields side-by-side instead of
    one under
    the other. The fields in question are "Children living at home" and "Yahrzeits". Is this
    possible?
    Thanks.

    It looks like you're using 2 Dynamic Textbox Widgets for the Children living at home + DOB and Yahrzeits (Name + DOD) fields.

    Since you're done SHRINKING both fields, all that's left now is to make the form wide enough to accommodate both of them in a single line. Shrinking fields alone won't help position them in a single line unless there's enough space.

    Just change the FORM WIDTH from 690px to 750px (or higher).

    Result (with 750px form width):

    Thank you very much! That worked perfectly. I have two more questions.
    1. Can I can the date fields to eliminate the year?

    2. Can I change the Submit button to a Print button?
    Thanks,
