    How to separate two columns: I have separated the reply options into two columns, but the are clumpe

    Asked by rmyrtle on September 04, 2013 at 11:39 PM

    I have separated the reply options into two columns, but the are clumped closely together so when reading, the left column seems to run into the right column. How can I separate the two columns so they are easier to read?

    Hello, I found the form you speak of (https://www.jotform.com/32425932429961) but just to make sure we are understanding you correctly. I think these are the options you are talking about that you mentioned are clumped and wanted them separated into Two Columns. Can you please confirm this for accuracy or correct me if I am wrong? To separate them it will require some Injected CSS but if you don't know how to do this we will gladly assist you with it though it may take a little bit of time and patience for us to configure for you.

    Additionally, I posted the screenshot and am asking to double-check since it appears that your attached screenshot did not show up for some reason. You may want to consider using our Image Tool or possibly a third-party system such as Imgur.com where you can then share the Image Link with us.

    Yes, I think. I meant that the are side by side but too close. Because they
    are close, its tough to see where one column ends and the other begins.

    Hi Ray,

    You must be referring the multi column checkboxes in your form


    Please inject this CSS codes into your form.


    .form-multiple-column .form-checkbox-item {width: 150px;

    text-indent: -21px !important;

    margin-left: 51px !important;



    Use this guide -How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    I made a test, and this is the result on my test form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/32497354716967
