    Hello John,

    I did check your form and it seems that you have set the fields label alignment to "Right". Please check the screenshot below:

    Please set the field label alignment to "Left" and that should solve your problem.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    OK, Why does it work when you select the Field then use the Label Align in the Properties  as below

    However it will not work when i select the Form Style and then Label Align which is what i was doing as i wanted to change them all in the Form, see below it says they are Left Align but they are not.

    Hello John,

    I did test and it seem that for the "Label Align" of the "Form Style" to work properly, the "Label Align" of the individual field should be set as "Auto".

    If you have set the label alignment of the individual form fields, the parent style of the form will not work. Please check the screenshot below :

    Hope this answers your query.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Hi John,

    Unfortunately, we don't have one for this method. But you can follow the advice given by Ashwin. If you want to change the alignment of the entire form field labels using the Form Style tab, you have to make sure that default alignment (auto) is present to all. Otherwise, that won't work. 

    Thank you!
