    Increasing the width of checkbox spread columns

    Asked by haplotk114 on July 05, 2015 at 11:19 AM
    Link below.  If you scroll down the page, I have 4 columns under 'Miscellaneous Skills' .  I'd like to be able to space them out so they are not so squished together and there is more room for the text, so each choice displays maybe 1 or 2 lines of text, rather than 3 or 4 (like some of them are showing).

    Please use this CSS code to increase the width of the columns.

    .form-multiple-column .form-checkbox-item {
          width: 250px !important;
    }

    You can change the width value if you want. Here's a guide on how to inject custom CSS. This is how it should look like.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.
