    Is it possible to lessen the padding in between the text boxes under the References section in my jot form?

    I believe you are referring to removing some of the padding between your reference info fields.

    Can you confirm that this is what you meant? Removing the spacing here as shown below?

    In most cases this should be possible using injected css or the form designer.

    If you're using a widget then you would need to check in the widget's settings for this if needed otherwise enter the necessary css adjustments there instead.

    Here are two possible solutions to help you correct this problem.

    #1 - You can lessen your form's default question spacing in the form preferences.


    #2 - You can add in this line of injected css below:

    #id_120, #id_119, #id_177, #id_125, #id_122, #id_121, #id_124, #id_123, #id_174, #id_175, #id_176, #id_178  {

        margin-top : -12px;



    And it will produce this result below which I believe is what you're attempting to do.


    Alternatively, you can just clone this modified version of your form I made back into your account since it's your form anyway. :)
