GUI for conditions

    Just a quick suggestion for the GUI for creating conditions.

    When choosing a field, it shows a very long, narrow list with truncated descriptions.  You have to scroll up and hunt for the right field.

    It would be great if the list of fields was much wider, and had longer descriptions. Or perhaps even a table rather than a list.

    Thanks again for Jotform!

    Yes, I know what you mean because on occasion I myself have had difficulty with this. Widening the selectors might not be practical but perhaps a tooltip that pops up showing the full content of a field when the mouse is hovered over an item in the list would help. Do you think so?

    Hi abajan,

    Actually, to be honest, I don't think a tooltip would help me personally. I don't think it would make the selection quicker, for me anyway. I think the ideal would be to see more information at a glance, without having to mouse over it or scroll.

    Easy for me to say, I don't have to implement it...!

    Just my thoughts though.
