    How can I disable all responsive behavior?

    Asked by oerez on January 30, 2015 at 09:35 PM

    I have already deselected responsive in both the designer and in the form settings, yet I still get responsive behavior.  How can I get it to stop?

     

    Unattractive - Text inputs expand out to full width (far wider than the input size set or required) on media screens.

    Deal breaker - On smaller sizes (both media and sized down browser) the text and fields start to collapse to the next row, which is an issue when I have fields lined up as a table/grid (with css/margin left, etc.). Basically it ruins the form.

    I would rather have the form cut off, requiring the user to zoom out, etc.

    It seems like the responsive code is injected from using the designer is causing the issue, but I cannot seem to disable it, as when I remove it or comment it out from from form settings, the designer keeps putting it back.  

    And I have to use the designer for inputting other CSS settings I am using, so cannot avoid the designer.

    Thank You

    Hi there,

    I understand that you want to turn off or disable the responsive function of your form. Since you already turned off the responsive function on the preferences and on the form designer and it is still the same. You might need to manually delete some values in the css code.

    I deleted some parts in your css codes so that the form will not be responsive. Here's the cloned form, please check it.

    If this form is okay with you then you can just clone it. Here's a guide if you need one: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL.

    Hope this helps. Thank you!

    Jan - thank you so much.

    I imported it and it works well.  

    I also did a file dif between the CSS in the original and in the one you changed...so now I know which additional items (that I missed) that I will need to manually delete in the final form once I'm all done using the designer.
