    How to move form fields on JotForm

    Asked by lisa_marzano on April 08, 2015 at 02:44 PM

    Moving fields on these forms is not easy at all. Can you add a move left / move right--like you have the move up/down? I can't get these to drop in the right order and it's driving me nuts (this was really easy in FormsCentral...)

    I am glad that you have noticed the move up and move down options.

    There are also shrink and expand options that will "move" the fields as well.

    The Shrink option will actually make the fields fall to the left, taking only as much place as they need, while Expand option (which is available only on a field that had "Shrink" option applied) will expand it to take the whole width of the form, as it does by default.

    When you use the shrink option on several fields, they will fall one after another and as you move them up or down, they will actually go left or right.

    Do try to use shrink and then to move them to see if that helps you accomplish what you are after.
