    The Button Checkboxes default style was already similar to that of the Submit button.

     

    Is there a specific style you are looking for? Please let us know so we can look for the necessary CSS code needed to style the button further.

    Thanks.

    Could you inject the CSS code below to your widget?

    .checkboxes input + label  {

    display:block;

    position: relative;

    padding-left:10px; 

    width: 170px !important;

    height: 50px !important;

    color: black;

    }

     

    If you have any question or issues, please do not hesitate contacting us. We will be glad to assist you.

    This is so odd that this question thread is appearing in my account. This is not my question. Not sure where it is coming from. Should I start a new ticket about this?

    What's happening is a mix up in the threads. I posted the original question about correcting the alignment of checkboxes (they were overlapping). I solved this issue on my own by finding the CSS feature on Jotform. --------- However,  this thread got mixed up with a thread about buttons and checkboxes. It looks like that question is by "natupote". It looks like that user is in a discussion with JotForm, but somehow two separate issues are being mingled together and the other user's question is being answered on my account.

    Hi @ohlerb,

    This thread was created by the user NATUPOTE. When you first posted in the thread, my colleague created a new thread for you so you would not get confused

    https://www.jotform.com/answers/887344

    This has already been answered by my colleagues. Please follow the this thread so you do not get confused.

    We try to indicate and have a single question per user in a thread so we do not get confused, like in this case.

    Not to worry. I didn't get a response on my thread, but the good news is, I figured it out myself.

    :)
