    CSS Styling of checkbox fields

    Asked by gijs_ros on April 18, 2016 at 10:52 AM

    Hi Jotform,

    i am trying to style my form using CSS code, but i am having some troubles with the checkbox fields on page 3 of my form:


    Each Collapse item has multiple fields in it. Some are based on an earlier input (Geslacht (Gender): Man or Vrouw)

    I am trying to accomplisch that every Collapse item contains 2 neat columns.. But whatever i try, the form shows big white gaps between the fields.

    Can you help me?

    Thanks in advance,

    If I am understanding you correctly you want to make your form field options placed into two columns whereas right now they are kinda all over the place with large gaps.

    I'd suggest starting off by adjusting the option spread for each so that it's in two columns and then if you need to you can then use additional css to adjust it more if necessary.

    Also, be advised that this is additionally based on the width of your form so it may potentially require further tweaking.
