    How can I cut down on the size of the form I created?

    It's here - http://form.jotform.ca/jsform/22824608429256

    And I'd very much like to condense the form to be "above the fold?"

    ???

    Hi Jim,

    Are you referring on spacing between fields? If yes, please take a look at this guide for more detailed information. http://www.jotform.com/help/156-How-to-reduce-vertical-spacing-between-fields

    yes...that did help...but only vertically...

    how do I do that horizontially too?

    too much padding all around....and no way I can see to change that?

    what I'd like to see is something MUCH smaller like this URL -

    How do I do that horizontially too?

    It is possible to inject custom CSS right from the form builder.

    For example, I have changed the form width to 600px and applied the following CSS code:

    .form-line {

    padding: 0 0 0 10px;

    }
    .form-header-group {

    padding: 10px;

    margin: 0;

    Unfortunately, it is not possible. However, you can get your form source code, modify that code in some text editor to apply custom layout, and embed it to your webpage.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    the page here that you URL'd for me - http://www.jotformpro.com/form/22916577253965 - is exactly what I'm after.

    So I did try to both change the form width t0 600 px, copied your CSS and I think I installed it correctly - saved the form - and it does not work???

    Can you pls look at this for me? My updated form is still WAY too cellpadded and long....ie it wont fit above the fold!!!
