    Where do I go in the designer to adjust the width of the columns for my check boxes?  They are all scrunched up?  Thx.

    Hello Julie,

    Changing the width of the check box question or the check box item should solve this problem. Please check the screenshot below on how to do this in form designer:


    Alternatively, you can inject the following custom css code to just change the with of this particular question:

    div#cid_47 .form-multiple-column {

      width: 600px !important;


    The following guide should help you on how to inject custom css code in form:  http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Excellent...Great info...but in the video I can't see what tab you're on within the designer to change the width.  What tab in in the designer are you on? Color Scheme? Background? Form Layout? Form Cover? Font Options? Label Styles? Line Layout? Thanks.
