    I do not think you have undestood what I meant or i am still doing something wrong. I am trying to put 2 text boxes on the same line. I have used the shrink command and tried adjusting the label and form width settings but this does not seem to work.

    Once you shrink, you need to then select duplicate.  It will put the second one right beside it.  You can add more with more duplicates, but you'll have to reduce the text box side to get them to fit.
