    How do I prevent checkbox options from overlaping when using columns?

    Asked by iowa4h on November 15, 2013 at 06:51 AM

    I have a checkbox question on my form with many options, and so I need to use columns to conserve space. However, when I do this the content of the columns overlap and become illegible. Is there a setting to fix this? If not, can you provide a work around?

    The question I'm refering to is near the end of the form. It's titled: Which of the following major areas of study do you plan to choose?


    Thanks for the help

    I have added the following CSS codes on your form


    #label_152{width:500px !important;}

    .form-multiple-column .form-checkbox-item


    width:250px !important;



    Please check your form if changes I did is what you need.
