    Rollover info (hover text) too far away

    Asked by designfacet on December 14, 2013 at 02:10 PM

    Is there a way to make the rollover info appear closer to the text input field?

    I think this is possible when you download your form source but I will make a test if this is feasible with injecting CSS and get back to you and let you know my findings.

    Assuming you're referring to our Hover Text feature,

    for each form where the texts are too far to the right of the fields to which they are associated, decrease the form's width, save the form and then check it at its URL. Adjust the width further if necessary.

    To change a form's width, do the following:

    1. Click the Form Style tab

    2. Click the Form Width button

    3. Enter the desired width

    4. Click OK and save the form


    As my colleague has correctly stated, this can also be accomplished via injected CSS, as explained in the following threads:
