    1. Insert a Text Box field found under Form Tools.
    2. Click the Gear icon on the top right corner of the Text Box field and select Shrink.
    3.Click the Gear icon again and select Duplicate this time.

    Thanks for respond, I still have a problem
    1. Click Shrink =èGear===èDuplicate = The next box created on the bottom of the original
    Note: I am looking for the next box created on the right or Left (Like Excel table)
    Today, I am trying to find out
    1. Where is the function can make two box get closer..? (From left to right or from bottom to top)
    (See picture attaching)
    By the ways I am trying to build a form called “Supply order”
    It had multiple text boxes item name and next to each box have a small box called “Qty”
    But I can’t make the boxes get closer the gaps between them is too far
    Here is sample what I am trying to do….
    Ex: When person select the item and they can choose how many they want to order for that item..
    The rest of that I believe your guys have a wonderful DIY form I ever meet in www

    Here is another issue (I am not sure, but teach me if I am wrong)
    1. Get a java script code from “Source Code”
    2. Insert to android (Samsung Note 10.1” and Samsung S5), the vertical Scrollbar did not scroll UP or DOWN…It stuck
    The form is appearing great…
    But I use the code from “Embed Form” is scrolling great no problem
    3. The printer doesn’t seem go nowhere…!!!
    I bet, give me some more time I may found more issues for your guys..

    Glad to see you've figured out making the fields side by side.

    If you want to make them a little closer, inject this CSS codes to your form.

    .form-line-column {

    padding-right: 0;
