    Is there any way to increase the column size in check box questions?

    Asked by veetan on February 15, 2015 at 10:24 PM

    I'm looking for a way to have the check boxes evenly spaced vertically - so that things like "abnormal lumps/bumps isn't split over two lines (see below).

    Hello veetan,

    Increasing the width of checkbox item will solve your problem. Please inject the following custom css code in your form and that should solve your problem:

    .form-checkbox-item {

    width: 190px;


    The following guide should help you on how to inject custom css code in form:  http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
