    How can I add a comments field for a particular question?

    Asked by ABATraining on July 11, 2013 at 07:11 PM

    We would like to have a comments field for participant to add their comments on some survey questions. Instead of adding Text Area right beside the question. But it makes more sense to have the comments together with the questions. How can I add a comments field together with the questions? Thank you.

    Use Text Area and shrink it so you can align it on the same line of your question field. It's like positioning them side by side. Field Positioning. I think this is the best solution for this.

    Just shrink your question field and the text area field like this:

    Hope this helps. Thanks!

    Hi Elton,

    Thank you for your answer. I tried the field positioning function. When I right-click a form field, I don't seem to have "Merge to above line" option. Please see below print screen:
