    Adjusting and Styling Form

    Asked by kranai on February 18, 2016 at 01:00 PM

    Hi Kiran

    I have created another form titled "Insight Academy Registration Form" This form as its name implies does the registration and hence it a little more bigger than the previous ones.


    I need to do the following:


    1. Can I force two fields to appear on the same line ? if yes how do I do it. For example my Designation and Department field if they can appear on same line will be neat.


    for some fields I have a hovering text that appears like a bubble when the cursor moves over it. Can I change the style meaning colour of font, background colour of the bubble etc? If yes from where do I do it?

    3. can I set some fields to appear on screen based on some condition? e.g. If registratrant is self-sponsored I want his home address field to appear. If he is company sponsored then I want the company address field to appear. Is this possible? Trying my luck here?

    Look forward to your kind reply

    You can follow this user guide: How-to-Position-Fields-in-JotForm

    and add some custom CSS codes like this using the Form Designer

    #label_20 {

        width : 100px !important;



    #id_19 {

        padding-right : 0px;


    #id_20 {

        padding-left : 0px !important;

        padding-right : 0px;



    You can also clone my test form https://form.jotform.com/60486087105961 and re-use it on your Form Builder.

    Follow this guide to clone How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    We will attend to the other 2 questions separately since they were about different topic here:

    Hi Jonathan

    The user guide was very useful indeed. I used the shrink option which was very easy rather then messing with CSS code. It shrink option does exactly what I want.
