    I need three boxes after a text box. Which widget to use?

    Asked by cultad on May 06, 2015 at 11:53 AM

    For example:

    If I want two empty answer boxes and the third empty box for instructor comments.

    Name two examples of fruit trees: Text Box 1 (For Answer 1), Text Box 2 (For answer 1), Text Box 3 (For instructor comments - student leave blank)

    Thank you.

    You can always clone the form my colleague created to see the exact setup:


    If you need any help getting one of these options setup in your specific form, just let us know which form you are working on as well as which part you are having trouble adjusting and we will be happy to help.
