    I cannot seem to make multi column forms

    Asked by brianbuffell on June 01, 2016 at 11:24 AM

    Some of my forms are very long. I need at least two columns with the freedom to move the fields around. I cannot seem to achieve that with your product. Can you help please.

    Please check this guide to learn more about how to position form fields: https://www.jotform.com/help/328-How-to-position-fields-in-JotForm. Making multi column forms is a bit tricky, you'll need to set properly the width of the form, use the shrink, expand and move to a new line function on your fields, and possible some CSS code.

    Here's an example of the "Move to a new line" function when you shrink a field:


    Here's an example form: https://form.jotform.com/61524711974963. You can see that it's a three column form. I just basically shrink the fields, made sure that they are on separate lines for each row, then set the width of the whole form to 1200px to make sure that it covers the total width of all the fields in one row.

    If you need help specifically on your forms, let us know and we will be glad to assist you.
