    Can I change the spacing between columns?

    Asked by DurangoPsych on October 16, 2013 at 06:34 AM

    I have a question field with many options so I have spread the selections into 3 columns. There is plenty of room on the page, but the columns are too narrow and the checkbox options are wrapping into 2 lines

    Is there a setting I can change to make the columns wider or add space between the columns?

    I hope the wording is not too confusing. See the attached jpg named "changed column width.jpg".

    Thanks for your help,

    Elle Ambrose

    Good day,

    Thank you for contacting us. Please try to insert this CSS code to change the width of the checkbox.

    .form-multiple-column .form-checkbox-item {width: 220px;}


    Let us know if you have other questions.
