    Hello zyrahfilms,

    I have cloned your form and changed it to display two columns in the "Location Information" section of form collapse. Please take a look at the following form :  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/40274063785962

    Are you trying to achieve something similar? Feel free to clone this form in your account for a closer look. This guide should help you in form cloning:  http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    @zyrahfilms

    What my colleague did is possible to accomplish by using our Shrink feature:

    In that way the fields will automatically reduce the width and will position next to other fields if the form has enough width so that fields can be next to other.

    You can learn more about field positioning by following the instructions of this guide: Form field positioning

    Please inform us if you need further assistance with this inquiry or kindly open new threads for unrlated questions.

    Thanks

    @zyrahfilms

    You are right, sometimes you will need to do some other changes so that you can get two fields in the same line and in that way compose a two-columns form. As I mentioned above, sometimes you need to give more width to the form so that two fields can easily fits in one single line. Also using the Merge to above line feature will help you when positioning form fields as instructed in the guide I suggested in my first message.

    Inform us if you need further help with this inquiry.

    Thanks
