    Used this forum https://www.jotform.com/answers/681883-How-to-reduce-the-amount-of-vertical-space-between-various-elements to adjust the vertical space / padding on my form. 


    After doing this, many of the elements on all three pages changed significantly....eg drop down menus increased in size and off the page, text elements shrank even on desktop view, and the phone number field reverted back to the "area code" subtitle being cut off again. I just changed the vertical padding and line spacing in the designer menu....After I saw these unwanted side effects, I adjusted these values back to their original but it did not work to revert to the original design. Why is this? I've attached the form link below. Thanks

    Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you. 

    Inside of this guide, you can find how to revert your form to a previous version.

    If the Advanced Designer changing the style of your form, I would suggest you to adjust the spacing inside of the Form Designer.

    This will erase hours of work, is there any other solution?

    May I ask if you already figured this out?

    I have checked your form, however, I was not able to find any issues within it. The dropdown options are showing the way it should, area code subtitle is displayed properly, as for the text fields being shrank, not sure what you meant by this as I did not see any irregularities.

    If you are still seeing incorrect layout, can you please share a screenshot of it. As with my colleague, the only option to get the previous layout is either to revert your changes manually by putting the old values, or by reverting using our Revision History page.

    Hi Vanessa, yes I was able to figure this out - as I just copied / pasted my code after reverting. Thanks
