    [Checklist Widget] Can we change formatting?

    Asked by ronshuller on August 12, 2015 at 02:21 PM

    In regards to the rough draft form below:


    How do I decrease the vertical space between fields both in checklist widget and text box fields


    How do I control left to Right alignment on fields so that I can line them up vertically in a line including the Checklist widget fields and the others



    In the checklist widget, I need additional fields that do not have check boxes but instead accept text such as the ones “Bride w/ _________________” that now appear below the checklist and do not line up (left to Roght) with the checklist fields.

    Unfortunately, the Checklist widget is not styleable at the moment. The widget is being loaded in a separate iFrame and we cannot inject styles to that iFrame. I have attached a feature request to this thread to see if we can add the 'inject CSS' option to the widget at some point.

    To find out information about fields positioning, please follow the next guide.

    It is now possible to use CSS and customize the Checklist Widget further. 

    You can achieve this using the Custom CSS tab:
