    How to change column width of a check box field

    Asked by maidprointranet on January 11, 2013 at 01:51 PM

    I am making a survey with multiple choice check box questions.  I have selected "spread colums" and only put in 2 columns, but it makes each column very narrow eventhough there is plenty of width left on the form.  The result is that the text wraps and makes the choices look sloppy eventhough there is plenty of room.  Is there a way to make the columns wider?

    Inject the following CSS codes to your form to increase the column widths (adjust the width value accordingly):

    .form-checkbox-item {
