    Is it possible to modify the height of title and texte labels, not the size of the characters (I know it is possible) but the vertical size of the label ? The space under and above title or text is too big. Thanks for your help.

    By reducing th space above and under Title/Text, do you mean reducing the vertical space between fields ? Please check that guide.

    Or are you talking about the padding between the text of the label and the field itself ?

    In the image below, this is the custom css used, so the space gets reduced between checkboxes and the label  a) Vous consultez le site internet de SEL

    .form-label-top {
        margin-bottom: 6px;
        display: block;
        white-space: normal;
        padding-top: 0px;
        padding-bottom: 0px;
    }

    My problem is the padding between text of the label and the field itself. How can I modify the padding ?

    First, you are using two different fields (text field and checkbox field) which both has padding that's why they're a little far form each other.

    You may consider using the following CSS codes.

    .form-html p {

    margin: 0;

    }

    [data-type="control_text"] {

    margin-bottom: 0;

    }

    [data-type="control_checkbox"] {

    margin-top: 0;

    }

    So it would look like this.

    You can also control the spacing between each fields in the form builder.

    I understand your answer, but I don't know how modifying CSS code. I have firebug but it is not possible to modify CSS code with firebug. My computer is Mac. How can I manage ?

    Sorry about that, you have to inject the provided CSS codes to your form.

    Here's a guide for that: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes
