    If I understood you correctly, you would like to get the checkbox field turned into Dropdown field instead?

    Or did you mean something else by the same under "problem 2"?

    How can I achieve this?

    When "Others" option is selected there's a text field to input another value to specify Others.

    If I understand your question correctly you want to add textbox field after other option. Actually, it is not possible with the configurable list. However, to solve that issue You can add another text field and change the position of it with injecting CSS code.

    td.col13 {

        display : block !important;

        position : relative !important;

        top : -28px !important;

    margin-left: 400px !important;

    width: 240px !important;

    }

    Here is how it works:

    Hi,

    Now the "HOME ADDRESS" textarea is gone and also there seems to be an extra "text" field located at the bottom.

    Please see screenshot. 

    Thanks.

    When you added new "other" field to configurable list, order of other fields labels was changed. Address field label is change to and "home or mobile number". Do you want your form to look like this.

    I have cloned your form and changed label names with CSS and I added one additional column for last field. Here is my form: https://form.jotform.com/61491482909969 

    Feel free to clone it

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
