    How to reduce form width to 286 pixels

    Asked by David on April 02, 2013 at 10:46 AM

    Good morning:


    Jotform.com is a great site and tool! It's quite a pleasure to use it, and I'm just starting.

    In using jotform on typepad, is there a way to have the form, and all its fields, fit into the side bar/typelist? The maximum width is 300 px, but there's some padding in there somewhere.

    I've reduced the type size and the size of the text boxes, but still can't fit it all in.

    Here's an example: http://daviddodge.typepad.com/Jotform%20typelist%20cutoff%20problem.jpg

    Thank you very much.

    Have a fine day!

    Please try adding this code in your forms style CSS


    .form-all { margin: 0px !important; width:300px !important; }

    .form-line { padding: 0px !important; }

    .form-address-line { width: 260px !important; }

    .form-address-city, .form-address-state { width:124px !important;}

    .form-address-table select { width: 130px !important; }

    textarea { width:260px !important;}

    table { width:277px !important; }

    To Inject the custom css code in your form, go to Setup & Embed then click the Preferences Icon. In the Preferences windows, click the Form Styles tab and add the code in the Inject Custom CSS field area.
