    To widen the width of your configurable list labels add the following code to the Custom CSS section of the Configurable list settings.

    min-width: 200px !important;

    Like I mentioned in your prior thread, target each of the column headers by changing the .col1 to the desired column. Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you

    You can give this code a try:

    .form-label .form-label-top{
    width: 300px !important;

    Please let us know the outcome.

    Sorry that the solution provided earlier did not work. I must say that I am not able to properly test your form due to how complex it is - takes an extremely long time to load in Form Builder. But I managed to do some test using the Inspect Element in through the browser and the below CSS code seem to work just fine.

    .form-label .form-label-top{
    min-width: 500px !important;

    Please follow this guide to inject the CSS code:

    Hi coming back to the above issue, I'm still experiencing the same issue. Once I select to "Shrink" the table it extends way beyond my desired width even though I have set width to 900.



    Once I select "expand" the label goes into a few lines as seen below.


    Basically I want the width to be around 800 - 900 and the lable to be along the top.

    Set the label to top:

    Then inject the following custom CSS codes to your form:

    label#label_1105 {

      width: 800px !important;


    Here's how to inject: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes.

    Thank you!
