    Is there any way to keep the text from overlapping on the area code/Phone number on the form below?

    Sorry but I'm not sure I understand the question. What exactly is overlapping? Please elaborate or provide a screenshot, as explained below:

    1. Go to:

    2. Click "Choose File" button and choose your image file (should be in JPG or PNG format and not more than 500KB)

    3. Click "Send Image" to upload (you should be able to see the file successfully uploaded in the image section)

    4. Select and Copy the direct file URL from the "Image URL" box

    5. In our forum editor, click the "Insert/Edit Image" button:

    6. Paste link in the "Image URL" box:

    **You should be able to adjust the image dimensions, we advise to set 550 in the first box to fit the image in the forum view.**

    You're done!

    The preceding instructions were copied from this thread

    Below is my own screenshot of your form with its phone number field highlighted:

    From what I can tell, the only thing overlapping are the words Phone Number but you would want that to overlap because the phone number is in fact comprised of an area code and number.

    It's possible that the overlapping to which you refer is browser related. In which browser are you noticing the problem?

    We look forward to your response.

    Unfortunately Chuck, the only way to upload a screenshot is as mentioned by my colleague above so as you have sent it over the email it is not being shown to us.

    I am however able to see just slight overlapping of each in my browser, so this CSS resolves it:

    .form-line[data-type="control_phone"] span.form-sub-label-container:last-child label.form-sub-label {
        margin-left: 8px;

    Now, this only moves the "Phone Number" text, so the box above it slightly to the left of the text - and since I like to keep things aligned, I would suggest using the following code instead (which moves the box above and the sub label together:

    .form-line[data-type="control_phone"] {
        width: 244px;
    .form-line[data-type="control_phone"] span.form-sub-label-container {
        margin-right: 10px;
        width: 50px;
    .form-line[data-type="control_phone"] span.form-sub-label-container:last-child {
        margin-left: 10px;
        width: 90px;

    To add any one of the two CSS codes to your jotform, please follow the steps shown here: Inject Custom CSS Codes

    and do remember to add the CSS at the bottom of all the other code.

    Do let us know how it goes.

    Unfortunately we do not see the screenshots on this thread:

    Nevertheless, can you please tell us if the codes above worked as you wanted?
