    I need to narrow the width of columns

    Asked by richgeasey on September 23, 2011 at 05:46 PM

    On this intake form:


    At the bottom of the screen is a matrix of times a new client can select. Right now it shows 4 columns, I have five columns in my form. How can I reduce the size of each column so all five fit in there.

    Hi richgeasey,

    First of all, thank you for using JotForm.

    You can do that by adding custom CSS to your form. I've attached here some illustrations for you to follow.

    1) Open your form to edit.
    2) From the toolbar click on "Setup & Embed" then select "Preferences"


    Enter the following CSS rule in the "Inject Custom CSS" section on the "Form Styles" tab to accomplish what you want

     .form-checkbox-item {   width:120px !important; }

    question spacing using css

    Hope you find this helpful. If you do have any other questions in the future, please feel free to contact us again.
