    How can I create fill in the blank questions?

    Asked by jennifergsg on September 08, 2011 at 05:25 PM

    I want to create a series of fill-in-the-blank questions where the blank is sometimes in the middle of a sentence.  For instance:  When I wake up in the morning, _______ is what I think about.

    I can't figure out how to create the fillable field in the middle of a text sentence.

    Is this possible?

    You can use Free Text (HTML) field to insert words in between textboxes. Shrink all fields, textbox and free text alike, by right-clicking on the field and choosing "Shrink".

    You can then place the free text fields beside the textboxes.

    To remove the label for the textboxes:

    1.  Click Label Align button then choose Top

    2.  Inject this custom css to your form:

    .form-label-top {
    label[class=form-label-top] + div {
    padding-top: 10px !important;

    To inject custom css:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Preferences button
    3.  Choose Form Styles tab
    4.  Copy and paste the css code in the Inject Custom CSS textarea


    Check out this sample form to see this workaround in action.
