    How do I left-align the required asterisk so it precedes the question instead of following it?

    Asked by mathetos on March 21, 2012 at 02:19 PM

    I already attempted to inject CSS and float:left, but for questions that are two lines long that just floated the asterisk to the left of the second line, which looks really odd.

    Also, I'm creating this form under a client's account, but here's the direct link to the form:

    I think the only way you are going to be able to realistically achieve that is embeding the forms full source and manipulating the HTML yourself.

    Ya, I wanted to avoid that if possible. Perhaps that's worth a new feature? Maybe even a few asterisk graphics to choose from like the fancy new submit buttons!? Just a thought. Thanks for your reply.
