    It's great to be able to duplicate multiple fields.  But is there a way to duplicate fields so they appear in the SAME ORDER AND POSITION as the original?  I used CSS to position my fields, but when duplicated they are all over the place.  I'm trying to make my form so users will be able to make multiple requests, so the same fields are needed going down the page.

    While I'm asking this, let me also ask how I would go about putting a solid black line across the page (without using a narrow box without a heavy black border).

    Thanks!

    It is possible to duplicate multiple fields at once so that they can be placed in the same order after a particular field by using Manage multiple fields option. Please see the screencast below:

    However, if you have applied CSS code to the fields using the elements ID, it is required to apply similar CSS code to the duplicated fields. If you have used the class to apply the CSS, it may not be required add the CSS code to the new fields.

    Hope this information helps! If you are referring to something different or need any further assistance, please let us know. We will be happy to assist.
