    Can I change how the text looks in a check box?

    Asked by ASTDNE on June 10, 2016 at 01:29 PM

    The text for the check boxes is about 20 words long and the format does not indent when it goes to the next line. I would like to see that happen.


    Ideally I would like to have a check box, a word with roll over abilities for more information, and then a place at the bottom to type text.  The user will check all that apply and then enter in information about each item checked.  Is that even possible.  I have tried a few differnt widgets and they just don't seem to work. I do have a fix and it is ok, but didn't know if that was a possibility.  


    PS it is in the areas of interest section.

    Glad you were able to find a work around to your question. If I understand you correctly you were looking for a text area to appear at the bottom of the checkbox for each selection the user selected. This is possible using the show/hide condition.

    You just need to add 5 different text area fields (one for each selection). With the show/hide condition, you can only display the text area corresponding to the selected element, so the user can enter all the skill he contains regarding the selection.

    I have created a this modification in the form I clone.


    You may clone the form I adjusted using the URL.
