    I checked the form https://form.jotform.com/60875320500952 and I was able to see the problem you mentioned.

     

    to fix this specifically, try adding this CSS code on your form 

    #input_12 {

            position: absolute;

        width: 130px;

     

    }

     

    Let us know if this did not work.

    this only worked for the first occurrence, not the other 2. please go into form and current for them. This should not be happening and the solution is silly.

    For two "Other" fields, please add this CSS code to your form:

    #input_92 {

        position : absolute;

        width : 130px;

    }

    #input_93 {

        position : absolute;

        width : 130px;

    }

    After you add this code, your form will look like this:

    Here is my cloned form where I added mentioned CSS code: https://form.jotform.com/60965355952971

    Feel free to clone it.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for your help on this - I edited the options for the sports in the check box fields and the pagination is horrible. I cannot see how to make the columns spread out properly so not lines flow to the next line. Please tell me how to fix it. Again, this feature should work much better than it does.
    Thanks,
    Pam

    Are you referring to this part of your form?

    You want that each check box options is in one line? If that is the case please add this CSS code to your form:

    #id_12 .form-checkbox-item {

        width : 200px;

    }

    When you add this code, your form will look like this.

    Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.
