    Hello :)

    How do I make my form have two columns?

    So I can have more than one question per line?

    Thanks

    Hi waynenoel

    Unfortunately, it is not presently possible to easily configure an entire form to have multiple columns but depending on your CSS coding skills, this can probably be achieved via injected CSS or by embedding the full source of the form into your page and targeting its various elements via CSS.

    However, in the form builder, options in check box and radio button fields can be spread over more than one column by using the "Spread Columns" tool:

     

    You can also use the "Shrink" feature to position fields side-by-side, as pointed out by my colleague Neil here. Here is an illustration of what he stated:

    Click to see the resulting form.

     

    Perhaps if you were to state specifically where you wanted each field in your form to be positioned in relation to the others, we might be able to come up with a viable solution.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Abajan :)
    The spread columns helped.
    I wanted to do similar but with text boxes.
    Thank you so much!
