    Whenever I add a line between my questions (shift + enter) it adds an element I don't want.

    Hi looking to add some space between a question (radio button questions) and I select the option, use shift + enter, and it adds a line but puts an unwanted check box in the extra line and which I cannot delete unless I delete the extra line.

    Hi,

    Please try using the tag </br> instead. Place it within the options.. example

     

    Option 1 </br></br>

    Option 2 </br></br>

    Option 3 </br></br>

     

    Using shift + enter will indeed add new options as this is the default keys of the field.

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

    Thanks.

    No it has not been resolved.
    When I enter shift+enter to create space between the radio button questions it adds a button in the line space.

    In that case, do what Jonathan has adviced to you, rather than typing, just copy and paste , something like this:

    Option 1 </br></br>

    Option 2 </br></br>

    Option 3 </br></br>

    That makes no sense, I am not seeing the form in html.
    When I select the option on the toolbar where you enter the shift+enter to create a line, there is text only. I tried putting in
    but it is not accepting html.
    Where do I enter the information below?

    Hi Belinda,

    If the breaks aren't working, an alternative would be to inject CSS to widen the spaces between the radio buttons (and check boxes), as I've done in this clone. Below is the CSS that was injected:

    .form-radio-item,
    .form-checkbox-item {
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    }

    Changing the 5 to a greater or lesser number would increase or decrease the margin respectively.

    Do let us know if you need further assistance with this.

    Thanks

    That would be fine if I host it on my web page but I was choosing to use your secure online form URL and don't have access to the page set up, or do I?

    Yes, you most certainly have access to the secure URL. Please see this guide.

    When you inject CSS, its effects will be shown on both the non-secure and secure versions of the form. There's no need to embed the form in a separate web page, unless you have a specific reason for doing so (like adding a script, for instance). You can just inject the CSS I provided and use the form's own secure URL.

    If you need further clarification, we'd be happy to help.
