    Column options for whole form

    Asked by kappabioscience on April 02, 2015 at 09:22 AM



    Is it possible to format my whole form with 2 or more columns? I know I can do this for individual question sections, but I would like to put my whole form in 2 or more columns, reducing the total length of the form

    I believe that is possible by manually shrinking and moving the form fields to next line. After that you can further enable the "Column" option in the form designer. Here's a sample step by step that I did:

    1. Right click or click the icon gear of the field and choose "Shrink". Do this to all of the fields, it will add the fields in one line have a column effect.

    2. I shrink all of my fields but the first two fields have a separate line while the last 2 also has theirs. I then navigate to "Designer" and choose "Form Layout", you'll see the option to add columns to your form there.


    This needs to be manually done because you'll need to properly position the fields.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards.
