    Since there is quite a bit of extra added CSS added to your form, I am not sure which part is causing the issue.  When I removed the CSS and added the theme back again, the fields were no longer compressed as they are in your copy.  Here is my test form to show you it working:



    If this does not look the way you would like, let us know and we will be happy to see what else we can do.

    Thanks! I think when I clicked the "designer" button, it added a lot of extra code and thwarted the actual custom code I needed.

    I started over and all I have now is CSS to add fade to to each form and change my highlight color.




    But one thing remains squished on mobile -- it is the "Draw" widget


    any idea how to compress the drawing box with css?

    Unfortunately, the drawing widget is rendered using an iframe. Thus, the responsive code will not affect it. What you can do is use the full source code of your form and then use a CSS technique like the one described here to make the iframes to work in a responsive way in your site: http://www.benmarshall.me/responsive-iframes/

    Other than that, I'm not sure if that particular widget can be made mobile responsive.
