    I need some help splitting my form into 2 columns

    Asked by tidybooks on December 11, 2015 at 06:02 AM

    Hi I have a form built but I would like to split this into 2 columns I have tried the Shrink option but this doesn't create the desired results. So looks like a CSS job. I have attached an image to show how I would like it to look. Unfortunately my css skills are very basic so not sure where to begin. Any help would be great!

     

    thanks

    I cloned your form for testing purposes, you can check it here: https://form.jotform.com/53443739344965?

    To do this, here's how I did it:

    1. First, place the form fields you want to be on the same row side by side, example:

    "Full Name"      "Phone Number"

    "Last Name"     "E-mail"

    etc...

    I shrink them and merge them on the same line. Here's a guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/328-How-to-Position-Fields-in-JotForm 

     

    2. After that, tick "Enable Form Columns" in your Form Designer Tool. Also adjust the form's width, in my case, its set to "900".

     

    3. If the "Serial Number" field is quite off on the right, you'll need to use this custom CSS code:

    #id_11 {

        padding-left: 18px !important;

    }

     

    If you want to copy or clone my form, you can do that by following this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL 

     

    Let us know if that works.

    I could replicate the same situation. I will add some changes to the responsive css code to solve this situation.

    I will let you know as soon as I have more details.

    Thanks.
