    The form just seems so long with quite a bit of open/unused space

    Asked by LeascoAuto on August 20, 2011 at 02:54 AM

    There are some things I'd like to see corrected/adjusted before embedding the HTML on my new website:

    The form just seems so long with quite a bit of open/unused space. I used a very "tight" fillable PDF-document as a "visual" template and this form is one-full page long. Also, the "right" margin is all over the place- it would be nice if it were justified in some way. I've already reduced the font to 10 point, so I don't think making the wording any smaller would be beneficial. Perhaps you can make some suggestions on how I can get this form to look "tight", more professional, yet "simple" for any user to complete.

    Hi Lar,

    To remove extra space and shorten the form height you can remove
    the spacing in between the questions by adding the following code:

    .form-line {
    padding: 2px;

    To do this:
    1. Open your form in JotForm.
    2. Click on 'Setup & Embed'.
    3. Select 'Preferences' from the toolbar.
    4. Click on the Form Styles tab.
    5. Add the code in the Inject Custom CSS section.

    Hope this helps.
