    Changing layout and format of form questions

    Asked by mreade on May 12, 2016 at 06:52 PM


    In this form, I want to move the tick box question nearer to the text above it.   I would also like to make this tick box text more prominent.  Can it be made bold and / or appear larger?

    Section 1: Grand Challenge Names
    The renewal of UCL’s Grand Challenges programme has provided an opportunity for the reframing and (if appropriate) renaming of established Grand Challenges, and to ensure that the new Grand Challenges (to be launched early in 2016-17) have the best and most compelling titles.

    Hi Michael,

    I used the Form Designer and uses a bit of custom injected CSS code to make the adjustments.

    I used this CSS codes. You can use try them on your form as well and see if its enough already.


    .form-checkbox-item label {

        font-weight : bolder;


    .form-checkbox-item {

        margin-top : -10px;

        padding-top : 0px;



    This is my test form with the changes applied https://www.jotform.com/61327515107954
