    How do I change the amount of vertical space between fields?

    Asked by nllemire on March 30, 2011 at 02:07 PM

    I have gone through the different related answers to questions regarding vertical adjustments on forms but didn't find the answer to my question which is: how do I change the vertical spacing between the different fields?

    In preferences, I have adjusted the question spacing down to "3" - adjusting it lower does not seem to change the spacing.  On the form, there's still a lot of vertical space between the questions.  I'd like to make the form look more compact. 

    How do I change the amount of vertical space between fields?

    Hello nllemire

    I cloned your form and when I checked the preferences, the padding in the custom CSS was set at 11 pixels instead of 3. Was the form saved when you adjusted the padding to 3 pixels? The padding seems to be adjusting fine on my clone.

    But the thing is, what you did initially should have worked without the need to inject custom CSS. This appears to be a bug. I'll notify someone about it.
