    Under Preferences > Question Spacing I usually see only one number - say 12px

    On one form it is as follows:

    Question Spacing
    Distance between questions.
          12px 36px 12px 36px

    Why are there 4 numbers instead on one. The form has some sections where form is 2-column - is that the reason.  In that case - what does each of the 4 numbers (12px 36px 12px 36px) represent.  I need to change the vertical spacing between the questions.

    Hello, kindly check this thread out:

    This may be happening due to the theme you are using on your form.

    The values themselves relate to positioning:

    Top padding is 12px
    Right padding is 36px
    Bottom padding is 12px
    Left padding is 36px 

    Do let us know if need further assistance. Thank you.
