    How to position 3 check box questions in one line?

    Asked by guineapigme on December 30, 2014 at 10:54 PM
    I would be happy to use the simple checkbox widgets but also would like 3 of these to fit on a line.


    If I delete the existing widgets and reinsert the simple checkbox lists (3 of them), will the existing CSS code still provide for them to fit on one line?   I tried cloning my form to check but it did not seem to impact the widgets.  i was left with my old issue, 2 on one line and the other on the next.


    Please advise, I would like to have use the simple checkboxes as a workaround for the gift registry bug, which I was only using a checklist because the original checklist had too wordy an output in the submission form.  I am assuming that the simple checklist output will be just a list of the checked items (which is all I wanted in the first place).

    Hello Deborah,

    To place 3 check box questions in one single line, you can simply take advantage of our "Shrink" feature and place them next to each other. The following guide should help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/90-Form-Field-Positioning 

    You can also inject custom css code in your form to further customize the fields width.

    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if this is what you wanted to achieve:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43642621441953? 

    This cloned form, displays the widget as well as the check box questions. Both of the are displayed in a single line. You can clone this form and then delete the one which you do not want to retain. Please check the screenshot below:

    The following guide should help you in form cloning:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
