    Hi John

    Yes, you can have fields displayed side-by-side by shrinking them.

    Let's say you had those three fields in a form, one under the other. Right-click the "Last Name" field and then click "Shrink". Do the same form the "Middle Initial" field and lastly, the "First Name" field and save the updated form:

    Tip: Clicking the "Properties" icon in the field (on the right) will also bring up the shortcut menu:


    Of course, the "Full Name" field is already formatted in side-by-side fashion. The only thing is that there's no "Middle Initial" option, only "Middle Name":


    Thanks for asking. If you require additional information on this or any other features of our forms, please don't hesitate to enquire about them. Our team will gladly assist you.
