    Two fields on same line

    Asked by RHemery on October 25, 2011 at 12:03 PM


    How is it possible to have two form fields on the same line?

    e.g. I want:


    Name: ______   Email: __________


    To be on the same line but I only have about 350px width to play with?

    You may use the Shrink and Merge to Above Line functions as defined in this user guide. Then, to fit them in a 350 pixel wide form, adjust the label's width to around 40 pixels.

    1.  Click Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Preferences
    3.  Click Fields Styles tab
    4.  Adjust label width to around 40, depending on your needs

    Sometimes the merge to line above is not an available option and the field has already been shrunken. How do you force two fields to the same line?
