    Can you please tell me if I can reduce the 'default' size of the form and if so, how?

    Asked by aytekin on November 11, 2010 at 01:57 AM

    I have been using your service for the past 6 months.

    I would like to embed a form on my home page and like to make the fields smaller than they are now.

    Can you please tell me if I can reduce the 'default' size of the form and if so, how?

    NB. I do not want to restrict the quantity of information a visitor can leave, just reduce the font size and overall form size.

    Many thanks,



    This is great question. That's why I moving this thread from emails to Forum.

    Some of those things can be changed from the "Form Style" Toolbar.

    Font Size: Make the fonts smaller on the form

    Form Width: Change the width of the form according to the space on your site


    Next, you decrease the question spacing from "Preferences". Click on "Preferences" button on the toolbar. (If you do not see a Preferences button, click on "Setup & Share" sub-toolbar first) then make the "Question Spacing" smaller. It is 10px by default.


    If there is anything else you would like to change, you can copy the full form source code to your web site and use an HTML editor to customize it further. Or you can use the Inject Custom CSS feature.
