    Lose space at top of form and input fields side by side

    Asked by nmgarnett on February 05, 2015 at 10:21 AM

    Two questions:

    How do I decrease the space at the top of a form and how do I set input fields to be side by side rather that a long list

    To decrease the space at the top of your form, there are a couple lines of code you can inject to your form that should work.  The first to try would be:


    .jotform-form {
    padding: 0 !important;

    If that does not work, you can also try this:

    .form-all {
    margin-top: -90px !important;

    Adjust the values to suit your needs.

    As far as having your fields in multiple columns, essentially you need only shrink them.  Here is our quick guide on form field positioning:
