    Please right-click the textbox and select Show Properties from the menu.
    Then change the Label Align from Top to Left.

    This should move the label to the left.

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

    Ok, thansk, it works, but I put it back, cause my layout was screwed up (alginment and input fiels out of the form).

    Can I also change vertical space between fields as shown above? (my screenshot)

    Yes, it's possible.
    Please try to inject the following CSS code into your form:

    .form-line {
    margin: 0 !important;
    padding: 12 px; !important;

    This should reduce the vertical space between the fields.

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
