    increase vertical space between label question and option answers

    Asked by sittercritter on May 07, 2013 at 11:01 AM

    Hi , the space is so minimal that it's hard to tell the difference between question and answers.  need more separation.  How can I do this?

    I cloned your form and I can see that your Label align to right. You can change it to left so that question will not be close to answer field.

    Click Form Style > Label Align.

    You may also want to adjust the label width.

    Click Form Style > Label Width.

    You can adjust it the way you want it. Here is the cloned form. Thanks

    Glenlee, Thanks for getting back to me so fast.  I appreciate that.

    I stayed with the lable align I had because thats the look I want.  But I adjusted the label width by about 30px and that has taken care of that issue.  But now there's anew one:

    Whn I reduce the browser size, the answer options drop beneath the label.. Can we keep them on the same line?

    When you reduce the browser the answer options drop beneath the label because our form is responsive. The fields will automatically adjust its position so that the user will can still access the field.

    May I ask , why the browser needed to be reduce? Do you need to embed your form to your website with a specific width?
