    Cannot change line spacing between questions

    Asked by plcwaldorf on January 28, 2015 at 11:04 AM

    Hi, I have tried repeatedly to change the spacing between questions in my form usi8ng the Preferences "Question Spacing" field, but regardless of the change I make there, it is not reflected on the form itself.  Nothing changes.


    Not sure about the Input custom CSS option:  if I erase what's shown in that box and simply input the suggested two lines of code is that what should be done.  I assume I would not be losing anything by deleting what's shown there now?

    Since you have an old theme applied to the form, these are a bit trickier to change.  First, you need to remove this line from the CSS already applied to your form.  You can do this in the form builder:


    Near the bottom of the CSS, there will be a section that looks like this:

    .form-line {
    padding: 2% 5%;
    -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
    -webkit-box-sizing: border-box;
    box-sizing: border-box;

    Delete the highlighted line.  That will remove the % padding between lines.

    After that, open the form designer:

    From there you can adjust the line layout as you like:

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