    Can I remove left padding on free text html boxes?

    Asked by JohnReaves on July 05, 2014 at 01:09 PM

    All my free text html boxes are a couple of spaces to the right, rather than flush left with the other fields. 

    Also, in general I'd like to know how to adjust padding around HTML boxes.  I've combed through the forums and can't find anything clear.  I want to do this globally, rather than box by box.

    The class name for the TEXT field is .form-html 

    So, if the CSS code you can used is something like this

    .form-html {

    margin-left: -100px !important;


    (example only, I moved the HTML -100px to the left)

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need more assistance.
