    Form Layout: Ability to "Shrink" by default the fields in a form.

    Asked by bkrasnof on July 14, 2016 at 04:35 PM

    Hi, it would be a great feature to have a setting that lets all new Text fields that I add to a form have the Shrink setting enabled by default.

    Or making that a property of the Edit Multiple Fields action.

    thanks, Bruce

    You can do this by injecting this CSS code:

    .form-line:not( [data-type="control_button"] ){

        width: 49%;

        display: inline-block;


    This should be the result: 

    However, I will forward this to our second level as a feature request, please do note that this may take some time to to be developed, although we cannot provide an ETA about when this may be available, we will let you know when / if this is available in the future.

    You can inject the custom css code provided by my colleague into the Custom CSS area of the Preferences. Please follow this guide to learn how: How to Inject Custom CSS Codes. If you need further assistance, please let us know. Regards.
