    Dear Jotform,

     

    I have a weird problem with the horizontal scrollbar, as there's always some extra empty space on the right of the form, even when the browser window is wider than the form width. I am not sure if this is because some of my own css code is messing up with the jotform css, could you please help me to take a look?

    Here's a copy to my form:

    Thanks a lot! As always!

     

    Best,

    Chao

    I took a look at your form Chao, and it seems that it is caused by the header at the top. Due to its position being absolute, the 100% width was relative to the window size, not to the width of its parent.

    To fix this you should add the following CSS code to your form:

    div.header-text.httal.htvam {
        display: block;
        margin-left: 30%;
        position: relative;
        width: 65%;
    }

    Do add it after all the other code in your forms custom CSS and let us know how it goes.

    Thanks Ben, 

    You were right, it is the 100% width caused the problem. And thanks a lot for the code. Your fix works well!  

    I just got another small issue with the header: when loading the form, the header will always be left-aligned to the left edge of the input field divs, rather than the edge of the whole page as I hoped. This might have something to do with the position setting "position: absolute" again, but I'm not really sure. Can you help me to take a look for this too?
