    PDF style problem: required property changes label position

    Asked by WisconsinArtsBoard on October 10, 2016 at 11:16 AM

    In section E there are several questions that require written answers. In the final PDF, all but question 5 format the label on the left even though I have them all set to position the label on top. The only difference I can see is that question 5 is not a required field. This is because there are 3 versions of the questions and only one is answered per submission. This is a problem because when the question (label) is on the left, it wastes a lot of space on the PDF. Is there a way to get all the questions to format on the top in the PDF like number 5?

    I have two suggestions for you. You can try them individually or at the same time.

    1) Try this CSS code:

    .form-required {

    visibility: hidden;


    2)Try this CSS code:

    .form-textbox {

    text-align: justify !important;


    Follow this user guide http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes to inject CSS codes to your form.

    If these codes don't solve your problem please contact us again. You can continue from this thread until your problem is solved.

    Good Luck!
