    Hello,

    I would like to expand the 3 columns so that the text doesn't wrap.  Thank you for any help you can provide

    Hi ppsform,

     

    you can try increasing this:

    .form-checkbox-item {

        width: 200px;

    }

    Make it 300px or more. That should do what you would like.

    pinoytech,

    Thanks for your response.  Here's an sample form with the code added; doesn't seem to help.  Seems simple, but maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    Use this:

    .form-multiple-column .form-radio-item, .form-multiple-column .form-checkbox-item {

    width: 190px;

    }

    Just let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for using JotForm, have a blessed day!
