How do i add more than 2 columns ?

I'm building my form and can't seem to add more than 2 colums ? Also how do i get the text to be above each field. Now i can only get it to the left or right.

Thank you, Wayne

To get the text to be above the elements you will need to edit the design of the form. In here select Form Elements from the top select list, then select Element Labels from the second list. For placement choose top, you should then choose left for alignment. This will get the labels to appear above the element.

As for modifying the number of columns you will be limited to 1 or 2 with the layouts in CSS Form Builder.

I have custom forms to complete for my an insurance agency. They have a four column existing form. I followed the instructions in the form and "ONLY" on column displays. In other words it took and existing four column form and converted it to a one column form.
Two would be twice as good but very limiting and not very "flow-friendly."

How do I "at least" get two columns please. Thank you.

First, edit the form design, from the main select list, select Form and set the Columns to 2. Set the Column width to be half the form width.

Then from the main select list, select the field set. Set the Left and right padding of the field set to 10px.

in the form contents, there are 2 ways to make an element be on the same line:

1) add a field set with 2 groups in it. for the second group, check the option to "Continue on same line as group above"

1) Add a field set with a group in it. edit the group. Select a line and click the plus button to add a new set so that you have 2 sets on the same line.

Form builder on steriods

I am working with form builder and wish this form allowed for up to four columns. I am working on a sixteen page, multi-column form for farm and ranch. With two columns the page would have to be enormously long and large.

I am searching for a way to have a "continue" button on a form so that they can visually "click" to continue on in the form. Is there a way to have a wrapper form and multiple forms.. so that the user can go back and view there information input prior to submission?

Also, I tried saving a preset and it converted it back to the pre-made template. I seem to be wasting an enormous amount on time on this. I hope it is not in vain.
