    How can I reduce vertical padding on a single text field?

    Asked by fhpw on June 23, 2015 at 01:43 PM

    I would like to reduce the padding on the text box so that it bumps up against the Meal Choice and the separator line is closer.  Where the arrows are pointing, I would like to reduce spacing.

    It is possible to remove an HTML paragraph in order to reduce the white space.

    Please see the next animation:

    If this is not enough, we can apply some CSS in order to reduce the paddings.

    Thank you.

    Thanks!  This did move the it a little. However, I would like to move it closer so that the text appears to be part of the Menu Choice.  What is the CSS that can be applied?

    You can try with the next CSS. Not that you will need to add a closing curly bracket } via CSS tab to fix a current CSS conflict.

    #id_33 {

        padding-top : 0;


    #id_13 {

        padding-bottom : 0;
