    Text area will not align

    Asked by AWCWebmaster on February 13, 2015 at 03:43 PM

    I'm building a form with labels on the left and form fields on the right. This works fine on all fields except a text area, where the label is above the box, even though I've set the alignment to Left. How can I get the label on the left and the box on the right?

    I can't provide a URL because the form hasn't been added to a page yet but hopefully this screenshot of the form field and the setting will explain it (the layout is the same when I preview the form).

    1. Shrink the Text Area field.

    2. Set the Label Align to LEFT
