Form width useability?

I am on some large monitors 1920x1200, but many of the DataAssist forms render in quite a narrow band. Am I the only one experiencing this, or is this the way they were planned?

The ones that I notice are the narrowest are: Compact (that makes sense, sort of), Sidebar (also makes sense sort of) and Dark.

I am not sure where I would use a form that is that narrow, even most of the others are too narrow for my purposes. Were these all designed to be this narrow, or am I having rendering issues?

see attached images

Thank you.

How wide are your pages? Monitor width is not the issue, really. As far as I can tell, though, the forms and fields are rather narrow.

Well is seems to be about 1/8th of the screen width, so that would be approximately 240px wide or so. This seems very narrow to me.

that is as intended for those form designs.


The design you refer to are originally from CSS Form builder, and are all supposed to be around 240px wide.

240px wide forms may be fine for the odd mailer form on a sidebar or two, but they are useless for an administrative backend. ;) Should they not change in size based on the type of preset you are using? Or better yet the user gets the option of setting the width during the wizzard process?

Some of those look not bad, but the 240px width is pretty unuseable for most of my purposes.

Just my 2c I guess.

you can create copies of the presets in form builder and change the width by editing the CSS.
