    column widths for 2 column checkbox options

    Asked by quickstartcrm on April 18, 2013 at 12:45 PM

    I have a checkbox question on a form which I want to show on 2 columns. However I cannot increase the width of the columns to show these checkbox options clearly (the labels for these options are approx 26 chars).

     

    I have tried increasing the form width but this does not help and i have also tried using a smaller font size without any luck.

     

    Please could you help

     

    Regards

    Can you please inject this cutom css and see if that helps you: 

     

    .form-checkbox-item {white-space: nowrap;}

     

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    It seems you have found a solution for this already. I can view your form much better as is now.

    I though I would suggest injecting a CSS codes like this

    .form-multiple-column .form-checkbox-item {width: 150px;

    text-indent: -21px !important;

    margin-left: 51px !important;

    }

     

    But, I can see in your form that you have already applied a similar code.

    Please inform us if still not satisfied with the current spacing on the form's field.

    Thanks.
