    I'm creating a purchase order form. There are alot of items to choose from, and the single list looks extremely long (especially when adding the quantity boxes). Is there a way to split up a purchase order form into sections?

    Hello mark4science,

    Do you want to list your products in categories?

    Though there is no direct option to achieve your requirement but it is achievable with a little workaround. The following guides should help you achieve your requirement:

    Thanks for the speedy response; that's a neat workaround.

    One more thing - can I add the quantity field to the right of each item? At the moment, it appears underneath and so, even with the subheaders breaking up my list, it still looks really long.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Inject this custom css in your form to achieve that.

    .form-product-item {

    width: 600px !important;

    }

    .form-product-item br {

    display: none;

    }

    .form-product-item .form-sub-label-container {

    width: 200px !important;

    float: right;

    }
