    How to Put a Area Text Box to the right side of other Text Boxes and maintain spacing

    Asked by James Avella  on July 09, 2014 at 02:49 PM

    I was thinking of using JotForm for my form building but I am having a hard time designing a form.  I am trying to place a Area text box the the right of other text boxes and maintain the proper vertical spacing between the text boxes but I cannot.  In other words I'm trying to place a Area Text Box (Comments) to the right of some Text boxes, First Name, Last Name and E-mail.  When I do this the vertical spacing between the First Name and Last Name spread out the height of the Area Text Box.  Is there a way to get the Comment box to stay out to the right and maintain the proper spacing between the other Text Boxes on the left?

    Hi James,

    That's possible by injecting custom CSS codes to your form. You can try the following.

    #id_10 {

    margin-top: -68px;


    #id_5 {

    margin-top: -16px;


    Result: Feel free to adjust the values in this code to align the textarea according to your preference.

    If you need anything else, let us know here.
