Is it possible to turn off or on the feature to align the PDF fields with other fields on the form?

    So I have been working on my form and find that when I move connected PDF fields around on the pdf form, the application tries to align the PDF fields with other fields on the form. This feature is often called "Snap-to-grid" or "Auto-alignment" in other applications. Sometimes this is very helpful, but there are times when I want to position the PDF field with greater precision and would like to turn the auto-alignment feature off. I have looked around the UI and don't see a way to turn this feature on and off. Is there a way to do it?

    Thank you!

    Hello Ted,

    At the moment, it's not possible to turn off or on the feature of PDF fields align with other fields (Snap-to-grid" or "Auto-alignment" as you called them)


    Let me forward this to our back-end team as missing feature,

    Jotform reviews all feature requests we get and we spend a lot of time researching and working on new features, but at the moment, I don't have any details on if, or when, this will be released as we don't have a public road map. Whenever we do release new features, we'll announce them to all interested customers. We appreciate your interest and input!
