    I am trying to create an online order form for a wholesaler. I would like to put a series of fields alongside each other like Item Name, Quantity, Colour. but can't see any way of doing this. The only way I have been able to create two fields is using the Full name fields.

    Please help, surely its possible…?

    Thanks Alessandro, however it doesn't seem to show how to align the different types of fields alongside each other.

    For example, have product name using an auto complete field, then to the right of this I'd like to have an another field such as a text box. Also the field lengths in Full name are static not widths adjustable it seems so yes I could add a prefix or suffix for other feilds but they are all varying lengths which is no good.

    Does that make more sense?

    Hi, since we do not have that kind of feature right now. I have a choice of ways that you might wanna check, I have cloned your form and made some samples for you there.

    Hope that would help.
