    Can't adjust the fields to be positioned in one line

    Asked by rbeazley on March 03, 2015 at 10:58 PM


    I am currently looking at using JotForm to replace Adobe FormsCentral.

    The form I am working on is http://form.jotform.co/form/50619060436855

    The Name, Date and Degree of Difficulty are supposed to be on one line.  I have used Designer to tailor the label widths and in Designer preview it all looks OK.

    However when I view the form online or through the Builder preview:

    a) all the labels are the same width

    b) the first three fields (see above) are on two lines.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It seems that this is related to the theme you have, the form labels adjust the sizes so it doesn't actually fit the form when viewed on live. Here's what you can do:

    1. First, move the "Home Team" to a new line.


    2. After that add this custom CSS code in your Form Designer tool.

    .form-label-left {

        width: 100px !important;


    3. This is how it will look like:

    You can clone the edited form here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50622033624949. Follow this guide on how to clone a form: http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL.

    I hope this helps. Do let us know if you need more information on this.

    Thank you.

    Hi Charlie.

    Many thanks  greatly appreciated.

    The form was one that was transferred over from Adobe FormsCentral so the issue may have been something within that process.
