    Aligning fields: Having 2 columns in 1 row

    Asked by GICS on June 14, 2015 at 04:07 AM

    I want to build a summary page and then control the results with condition that populate the fields and also hide fields that have no values entered.

    However, I am having quite a bit of difficulty trying to drag and drop two text fields so that two fields will sit simply on each line. I get the first line the way I want it and then try to duplicate fields and then it all goes wild.

    Is there a trick to doing this?

    Are you planning to create 2 fields in 1 row? I believe this is the field you are referring to.

    Is this what you wanted to happen?

    Here are the steps I took to achieve this:

    1. Drag the "text box" below or after the "Fee" field.
    2. Remove the label.
    3. Shrink the field.
    4. Change the size to 40.

    5. Drag another "text box" after the 2nd Class entries
    6. Remove the label.
    7. Shrink it.
    8. Change the size to 10.
    9. Just add the "Hint Example" on both fields.

    Based on the form that you created, I understand that you know how to remove the label, change the size of the field and shrinking the field. It is the reason why I did not provide any screenshot anymore. But if you need a screenshot or help regarding this matter, let us know so we can further assist you.

    Thanks for your response.


    What I think I should be able to do is duplicate the two fields, but this doesn't work at all in respect of their positioning. If I do this, on subsequent lines, I cannot get the fee field to sit nicely to the right of the Class Entries field.

    A great innovation would be to be able to multi-select fields to duplicate and maintain the positioning on the line selected to duplicate.

    Hi GICS, 

    Have you tried using the Manage Multiple Fields feature? Manage Multiple Fields can help you duplicate multiple fields and you can select which field you want the duplicated fields to be placed next to. Just follow the instructions below to try duplicating multiple fields.



    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
