    You should be able to do that in the "Label Align" options

    The label of each field should be positioned on the option you selected. I presume you would like it to be on top of the form field.

    Do let us know if you need more help on this.

    I am referring to making the default setting for my forms have the label go automagically to the top of each field without having to select the "Top" label align option. In other words...

    Every time I create a new field in a form I would like to have the label at the top, be the "auto" or "default" location, it is currently defaulting to the left.


    Hopefully that clarifies my request.

    Unfortunately no, the default setting is Auto, which will set the label to left if the form is wide and above (top) if the form width is narrow.

    Basically what that means is that if you are going to create form with small width, it will be like that for you automagically, but otherwise, you will need to set it up like so yourself.

    The only possible thing that might help you is the option to clone the field (with all of its properties as they are). You can do that by clicking on the field and then on the little gear wheel at the top right corner and clicking on Duplicate:

    Or if you would clone more fields, the Manage Multiple Fields instead.

    Hope that this helps, but do let us know if you have any further questions and we would be happy to assist with them.
