    Is it possible to auto number questions? If not can text be indented so it is aligned when falling on to two or more lines?

    10. This is a question that falls on two lines, in an ideal world I would like it to 

          look like this.

     

    rather than like this

    Unfortunately no, questions cannot be auto-numbered. As for indention, I am not sure but this could be what you're trying to accomplish:

    versus this:

     

    If my assumption is correct, then you can implement the above by injecting this custom css to your form:

    .form-input {
       
    margin-left20px;

    }

    To inject custom css:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Preferences Form button
    3.  Choose Form Styles tab
    4.  Copy and paste the css code in the Inject Custom CSS textarea


     

    Let us know if it helps in any way, or if it is not what you wanted to do. We'll be looking forward to your feedback. Thanks!

    Thanks for this. My problem actually relates to when questions fall on two lines. I want the question text on both lines to line up, but the number to be to the left of both lines of text in the same way it works in Microsoft Word. Could this also be achieved by customising the CSS?

    Sorry for being stubborn. I thought I was into something :)

    Anyway, here is the only workaround I can think of:

    Insert a non-breaking space " " in front of the text that you want to indent. Insert as many as needed.

    For example:
