    Horizontal padding between label and field on form

    Asked by chrisjaeger on February 09, 2014 at 08:57 PM

    Hi. I'd like to create some HORIZONTAL padding between these checkbox options (see form link).

    The text from the label is too close to the option box and doesn't look right.

    This is probably a custom CSS thing, I just don't know where to start looking?

    Hello chrisjaeger,

    Please inject the following custom css in your form to increase the left margin in checkbox fields of your form:

    .form-checkbox-item {

    margin-left: 30px !important;

    margin-bottom: 20px !important;


    The following guide should help you inject the above custom css in your form:  http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Thank you!
