    Address Field Alignment Problem

    Asked by Masalamedia on February 08, 2013 at 11:53 AM

    Why doesn't the ADDRESS combo-field line up with TEXT fields? This makes forms look sloppy.

    Hi,

    This is the cloned version of the form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/30384738113957

    They seem aligned to me...

    ---

    I made sure that all labels are aligned left, and no auto align

     

    Make sure also that fields are expanded to occupy the width span of the form

     

    Hope this help. Please inform us you have further inquiry.

    Thanks.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.  You will need to inject a custom css on each field 

    Please add this code 

    #id_39.form-line {margin-left:12px; }

    you can adjust the pixel size by changing the value.

    That cloned form that "seems aligned" to you is NOT.

    jefreylandicho.... thank you for this workaround, but with all due respect, why aren't the form fields lining up in the first place? I don't think it's asking a lot of your service to generate forms with consistent margins.

    This is a label aligning problem that is not commonly reported by our users .

    As Jonathan has adviced to you , make sure that

    -all labels are left aligned ,  not auto aligned

    - Fields are expanded to occupy the width span of the form

    Thank you Jefrey. Jeanette: all the labels are indeed left aligned. In fact, I have yet to see a scenario when the 'auto align' setting creates desireable results.
