    I really like the button check box widget as it allows a great option for touch screen choices. Is there a way to use it so that more than 5 options can be displayed without it running off the page?

    Hi,

    What I would suggest is to break it into several (for example 2) button checkbox widgets instead of one.

    This would allow you to set as many fields, but limit them to form size in the same way.

    You could also use Button Radios widget instead as it will allow you to break the long line into several rows and adjust the width of the buttons.

    For example: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43235354387963

    Best Regards,

    Thanks...but would it be too difficult to have the same options available in the button radio widget as far as allowing columns?...For touch screens the checkbox widget is the easiest to select.

    Yes that works with buttons but not checked boxes so it limits me to one
    choice not multiple and if I want to create several choices that means I
    will have several different fields to incorporate into a document
