    need labels to word wrap on checkboxes

    Asked by Debwork on April 06, 2015 at 08:14 PM


    For some reason responsive css is set to white-space: nowrap on checkboxes. How do I override it?

    My fix is not working for mobile.

    Also, for some reason the OTHER field is set really short so I had to make that bigger ... gets cut off in mobile version.



    form#Mynumber.jotform-form div.form-all ul.form-section.page-section li#id_12.form-line.jf-required div#cid_12.form-input-wide.jf-required div.form-single-column span.form-checkbox-item label  {
        white-space: normal !important;

    Please try the following:

    1) Set the responsive option to "no" at preferences tab.

    2) Add the mobile responsive widget:

    It should fix the issue:

    Ok good.

    hm, I wonder why that responsive setting is there but glad to have the fix with the widget.

    Allow other=Y is too short and controlling it was part of the problem so I took it out.

    Maybe it is standard but padding on smaller viewports also was needed.

    Thanks! On to testing.
