    Shrunken fields not displaying properly on the form designer

    Asked by webdesignrus on November 22, 2014 at 02:25 AM

    I have been encountering bugs with Forms Designer. I have put notations on the attached screenshot which should be self- explanatory. I hope this helps but if you need a more detailed explanation please let me know.

    Thanks for reporting this to us. I have now passed this to our developers so they can look at it and maybe find a better way to improve the shrunken fields layout on the form builder.

    To rectify this, open your form in the form builder and move the field that stays on a separate line to a new line. To do that, simply right click the field and click Move to a new line. This should correct it's display on the form designer. Hope this helps somehow.

    Here's an example:

    Actually, upon looking at your form, I see no problems with the form designer. It is the following CSS code that's causing the big white space above and below that particular field. 

    #id_57 {

    margin: 107px;

    Removing this CSS code or decreasing the current margin value to 4px should fixed it.
