    How to decrease the vertical spacing between fields?

    Asked by lisa  on October 22, 2015 at 11:25 AM

    I need less space between the questions and the text box. They are too far apart. I will give a screenshot of what I'm talking about

    I would first like to mention Lisa that you are currently using JotForm with a guest account (guest_52924459695067). What this means is that all of your forms are associated with your cookie session on the specific device you are contacting us from, and while it lasts you will be able to see them.

    They will still exist once it is removed, but you would not be able to find them since you would have a different session, but if you sign up for a free plan, you will be creating an account that you can log into at any time and check out and change all of your forms - no mater what device or location.

    You can sign up on the following page: http://www.jotform.com/signup/

    Now in regards to the issue that you experience.

    I believe that this is happening on the following form: http://www.jotform.us/form/52935645358163

    This is the code that will help with the same:

    li[data-type="control_text"] {
        margin-bottom: -45px;
    #id_11 {
        margin-bottom: -25px;

    You can add it to your form by following the steps here: Inject Custom CSS Codes just remember to add the code above behind all the other code that you see in there (if any).

    Do let us know how it goes.
