Text alignment question.

Text alignment question.

On the form when there is not a required red star the text moves forward to fill the space. I am trying to keep the end of all the text lines, lined up on the right with all the text required or not. So if the line is not required the text does not move forward to fill the red star area. See below image and here is a link to the test site http://americanmadegoods.net/betatwo/loan-application.php

One other question on this form. I would like to move the fields to the right so all the text is on on line and the form more fully fills the gray area. Right now its crammed into the left area.

Thanks,

Bob

the label for required fields adds a span tag with a asterisk in it:

<label for="First_Name" class="sublabel" > First Name:<span class="requiredIndicator">&nbsp;*</span></label>

for the not required fields, you'll need to add the same span, but empty:

<label for=" FICO Credit Score:" class="sublabel" > FICO Credit Score: Name:<span class="requiredIndicator">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></label>


when you run the form builder wizard, in the design settings, you can specify the width for the labels. It is wrapping to a new line because the width is set to narrow to fit your full label on one line.

Hi Jason,
Excellent all is working as you direct. One more question on spacing. Here is a form with a long label (3 lines) and it's required. How can I pull the top two lines back to line up with the rest. Here is a link http://americanmadegoods.net/betatwo/brokers.php
It the line that say:

Purchase Price or
Current Market

As always,
Thanks,
Bob

Hi Jason,
The lines are to long to make the form width that long. There must be a way to get a space in front of a line of text?
Look at the line "Purchase Price or" and "Current Market" Value: *

Not with the way the line wraps.
