    Is there a simple way to increase the left margin on the entire form?

    Asked by AmerDamer on August 23, 2013 at 05:47 PM

    I was able to inject a css code that changes my background.  For the image to look right, I increased the form width to 1500.  With the form that wide, the data fields are positioned all the way over to the left.  I want the left margin increased so that they are closer to the center of the form horizontally.

    Based on your current design you will need to shift each element in the form to the left. To achieve this please inject the css below. You will need to add the ID for each of the elements that needs to be shifted to the right in the css below ( I only included the IDs on the first page).

    #id_4, #id_141, #id_7, #id_8, #id_6, #id_9 {

    padding-left: 450px !important;


    Please let us know if you need any further help with this or if you have any further questions.

    The CSS below is actually a better solution. Please inject this and not the one that I provided previously.

    .form-line {
    padding-left: 450px;

    I hope this helps!
