    Privacy checkbox text goes out of the form

    Asked by franciou2 on November 13, 2014 at 06:12 AM

    Hi jotform team, 

    I have one question: my form has a checkbox with policy terms.

    I customized my form using CSS, it's a responsive form with labels 100% width: i don't know why the text of the privacy checkbox goes out of the form because it's too long.

    I expected the text to go on a second line, but it doesn't: I tried using width and max-width to make the label shorter but the text goes out in any case.


    How can I make the text to go on two lines?
