    How can I space out columns in a multiple column check answer question?

    Asked by tcusker on December 02, 2014 at 10:31 AM

    I would like to use a 2 or 3 column check answer for my form but the columns overlap each other and are unreadable.  Is there any way to set the column width?  I have added a screenshot.

    I see you are having a problem with your checkbox options overlapping.

    This happens usually because your text is too long and if your form width isn't wide enough.

    To fix it you can try a few things:

    #1 - Adjust the checkbox field column spread

    #2 - Change the form width

    #3 - Use the form designer or injected css to modify the field


    If you still need help with this then please provide us with a link to the form you have mentioned and we will gladly do what we can to aid you in fixing it.
