    Added CSS for setting up margin is not applied

    Asked by theideaboxkids on April 21, 2015 at 12:17 PM

    Hi There-


    I have a form I created called, "Wholesale Order Form."

    I noticed that the table of "Items" on the form is not following the overall settings I have for the form:

    .form-all {
    margin-left: -35px;


    It has been working perfectly for several weeks (thank you JotForm!)...but, I noticed this when I made minor changes to other areas of the form.


    Can you advise?

    I presume Jennifer that you want the field to be aligned with the rest of the of the fields on their left side.

    To do that you can slightly modify the code above to this:

    #id_24 {
        margin-left: -35px;

    You should add the code at the bottom of the jotforms custom CSS property: How to inject Custom CSS Codes.

    Do let us know how it goes and if any alterations are still needed.

    Thanks for your help, Ben...I'm sorry to say that it didn't work.

    The table is the only thing not justified to the left. Not sure why it has decided to stop working, as it has always been justified to the left.


    Anything else I can try?

    Hi, Jennifer,

    In addition to the help that Ben have given, you may also want to try to have this CSS codes in your Inject CSS field: You may remove margin:-35px; inside #id_24{} and replace it with, float:left; and clear: left;

    #id_24 { float: left; clear: left; }

    And this is how it should look like when you preview your form.


    I hope this helps. If not, please feel free to let us know so we may further assist you. Thank you.


    Kind regards,

    Perfect! Thank you...that worked.

    This is what I put in the Inject CSS Field:

    .form-all {
    margin-left: -35px;
    }#id_24 { float: left; clear: left; }


    Thanks again to you both!
