    Spread Checkbox to 3 Columns

    Asked by jetboyb747 on April 11, 2013 at 08:33 AM

    I am trying to spread the columns under "Please indicate if you have ..." to 3 columns.  It works if I spread to 2 columns, but when I try to spread it to 3 columns, it puts it all back in one column.  I have looked through the forums but cannot find an example of this.  I also tried increasing form length and expanding but that doesn't seem to work either. 

    Can you figure this out?

    Do you mean the spread column on checkbox? I checked your form and the checkbox is already 3 spread column. Please confirm to us if this is what you need. Thanks.

    Yes, but does it really look like that when you preview it?  Mine shows all in one column. 

    Using IE9, Windows 7.

    @ jetboyb747

    I got the same behaviour on your form in my Win 7, IE9 setup.(also on Firefox browser)


    However, I think this had to do with the current CSS codes injected into your form. Because when I disabled the CSS codes, and retain the original width of the Checkbox, I got it to display properly in IE9 and FF


    Try to lessen the widht of Checkbox in your CSS code. I tried 180px, it seems to still work.

    .form-checkbox-item {

    width: 180px !important;


    This is the form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/31004125998958

    Hope this help. Inform us if you have further inquiry.
