    How can I create a form with 2 columns?

    Asked by Momtrck on January 08, 2015 at 04:40 PM

    I searched through the forum and can't find an answer to this question---how can I design a form that has 2 columns?  I find how to shrink an element and move it to a new line but that doesn't help.  I need to be able to put some form tools in a column on the left side of the form and some on the right side of the form.

    I want to replace the form in this website   http://www.moodycountyabstract.com/title-order-forms.html

    with a Jotfom so I can use the Catcha tool.

    I imported the form from the website into my Jotform account but all the form tools are stacked in one column.

    Do you have a tutorial on this?  I can't be the only one who needs columns.  I see some of the Templates have columns so it must be possible.

    thanks for your help.

    I went to the User Guide and entered Form Field Positioning.  I have attached a screen shot of what pops up.  Sounds like the info is available but I can't see it!  Can you help?

    Hi,

    You should be able to click on the link my manager provided.  If not, here is another link that should work:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/90-Form-Field-Positioning

    That should take you directly to the guide referenced in the previous post.  Essentially, to make 2 columns, you will need to click on each field and shrink it:

    You can then move two fields to the same line.

    Let us know if you have any further questions regarding this and we will be happy to help.
