    I'm considering using your service in replacement for Adobe's. I've imported my forms to check their compatibility with your layout and I have encountered several problems. First, I can't manage to have four textboxes on a same line, it seems there's not enough space to do so.

    Also, I can see all the fields when I'm in the builder, but when I preview my forms some textboxes are missing (every single one of the "chèque n°" labelled textboxes are gone).


    Thanks in advance for your time and answers.

    Thank you for your fast answer. Although my problem is this : I need to have my forms' layout to be as close as possible as it was in Adobe Formscentral, which mean I need to have my lines like this :

    Label Textbox    Label Textbox    Label Textbox    Label Textbox   

    and not :

    Label                Label                Label                 Label

    Textbox            Textbox            Textbox              Textbox


    In order to do that, I managed to customize the margin-left attribute of the textboxes to 20px (previous value was 40px), but I'd like to have the labels' width adjust to the text, and not to a given value. I did that in the Designer tool but the CSS rule gets overruled by the given value set with the "!important" property. Is this somewhat possible?

    The label will only fill the size it is allowed, it will not adjust the size of the box it is in to the size of the label.  It is possible, as you said, to adjust their sizing based on a specific value but their sizing is indeed fixed based the size of the label area.
