    The Spread Column function for checkbox is not working correctly in my form

    Asked by igreenha on November 27, 2013 at 10:10 AM

    The spread seems to be ok in the form builder, but not on the live form.  I'm trying to spread to 3 columns, but neither 3 nor 2 columns seem to have any effect on the live form.

    I also made a test with one of my own, but at this time it worked fine:

    However, I was not able to find the reason of this behavior. I deleted all the fields except the checkbox, however, the issue still persists. So I have forwarded this bug to our next level support so that they can look for a prompt solution to this issue.

    I've clone your form to investigate and found Multi Language Form Options causing the issue. By removing multi language form option, that would do the trick.
