    TABS Widget - left tab 'spills' off form

    Asked by criterions on April 30, 2015 at 11:09 AM

    I love the tabs widget, but I use it for my form, the left most label 'spills' off the form and it looks crappy. I've tried adjust the size using CCS but can't seem to fix it. I like the default triangular tabs, so I don't really want to change that.


    Any ideas?

    Please try adding the following CSS code to your JotForm by following the guide below : 


    #tabs-list {

    margin-left: 90px;


    This is how it looks like after applying the provided CSS code.

    Hope this information helps.

    Very cool - works great! Now...one other question. Is there a way to apply a background color to the ENTIRE active tab? I set a background color, but it doesn't fill the entire triangle-shaped tab.
