    Complex Matrix Form Field Padding and Width

    Asked by earthsticker on November 11, 2013 at 04:41 PM

    I have this form with multiple matrix sections and other simple input field. I'm having some trouble getting the labels to have padding between them as well as maintaining all Matrixes aligned in place. I tried different form widths and finally got them to jump to the bottom of eachother. I'm trying to make them look just like the preview from your site (please see screen shot) accross browsers and platforms.

    As usual I'm very gratefull for your support and commitment to your users.

    Hi Oscar,

    Thank you for contacting us! Upon checking your website where your form is embedded, I was able to replicate the issue. Can you please re-embed your form code into your website using iFrame method instead to fixed the issue?

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the help. I did use iframe method and it improved greatly. Now the only browser that refuses to cooperate is Chrome. it is stacking all matrixes (please see screenshot)

    Any ideas in how to force Chrome to put them side by side.

    Your form appears to be fine on my Chrome Browser. Fields are side by side.

    Have you tried clearing your browsers cache? If this isn't right, can you post here the screenshot you mentioned on your last reply? Unfortunately we were not able to view it here. Here's how to post image to this forum thread. https://www.jotform.com/answers/277033

    We'll await your reply. Thanks!
