I wish the "other" option of the checkbox to appear in the same line as the other options

    I am creating a question with checkboxes as responses. When I add an "other" choice, it always seem to appear on its own line. Is there a way to force it onto the line above it (when there is space). Here's an example: http://form.jotform.ca/form/50684875511259

    Please add this css code:

    #cid_17 div.form-multiple-column {

        -webkit-column-count : 3;

        /* Chrome, Safari, Opera */

        -moz-column-count : 3;

        /* Firefox */

        column-count : 3;


    .form-multiple-column .form-checkbox-item {

           padding-bottom : 5px !important; 


    You can clone or test the demo form:

    Do I add the code at the beginning of the Inject Custom CSS section of Preferences? I tried that and it didn't seem to do anything. I can see it on the demo form & it looks exactly like I want it but I'd like to understand how to do this on multiple forms. Thanks.

    Here is our quick guide on how to inject CSS to your form:


    Usually it is best to add new code to the end of you current code if you have any present.  In the case of your form, insert the extra code after this line section:

    82);}#label_54{color:rgb(61, 72, 82);}

    You can also separate the code out to its own line by pressing shift+enter for a new line.
