    I meant more like how to have 2 as one. First name and last name like the quicktools. So one field has 2 text boxes. Like below

    so its:

    ---------------------------------------

    Full Name

    [_______] [_______]

    First         Last

    ------------------------------------------

     

    I didn't mean how to move different fields around the form, more towards how to have 2 in 1.

     

    In the quick tools, for the full name, in settings it says under Field ID: #first_5, #last_5. So thats 2 in 1 field right?

    Hi,

    Thank you for the clarification and providing more details.

    In the quick tools, for the full name, in settings it says under Field ID: #first_5, #last_5. So thats 2 in 1 field right?

    Yes, you are correct on this. We also call them as compound fields.

    You can actually use the compound field like Full Name or Full Address for other purpose like this

     

    There is also the Matrix Dynmique widget http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/matrix_dynamique -- you can add multiple input on one field.

    You have not mentioned exactly which compound fields  you need that is not available in the Quick tools. If you can describe more how you want to use it such field, we can give more suggestion.

    Thanks!
