    How can I put in a "spacer" to align the fields?

    Asked by LadyAnglesey on November 03, 2011 at 12:50 PM

    Loving the ability to shrink to put multiple fields on the same line! But I'm trying to get my form to look more user casual - as if the user were writing a note, rather than filling in a sterile form. So I need to align vertically with fields that aren't shrunken. Example:

     

    My name is {fname} {lname}.

    I live at      {streetNum} {streetName}

    ********* {city}, {state} {zipCode}

     

    The space where the asterisks are is where I fall down. I want city, state and zip to vertically align directly beneath streetnum and streetname, so the form doesn't look messy and haphazard. Any suggestions?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately, we do not have any "spacer" tool, but if you provide us with the form ID in question we may try to inject some custom CSS code to fix the problem.

    Also please take a look at our built in Address element solution:

    We are looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks Mike, the Form ID is 13063606227. Unfortunately, the built in Address element won't work for me, as all form submitters must/will be in one state in the US due to the nature of the business. (Including country and state fields would be very puzzling to them.)

    Nevermind. I jeri-rigged it in the code (hate messing with cold hard code), and it looks like hammered shallac in WYSIWYG, but looks and acts lovely on the website.

     

    Only thing is, the iPhone App notification is terribly out of order. If I had to rely soley on that, I'd never respond to any clients. (That's a joke, Mike. I'll deal with it.)
