    Default Form Design Field Titles

    Is there any way to adjust the amount of extra spaces that are placed in the text box that contains the Field Title when using the Genie to place fields with titles on a form?

    For example, when I drag a field named SSN onto the form the text box is at least 20 characters wide instead of only 3 characters wide.

    Right now I am having to manually adjust the field title text boxes so that I can fit several fields side by side on my form without them hanging off the sides of the form.

    Thanks!

    Charlain,

    First thing you want to do is ungroup the label from the content. I'm at school now, and I can't give the exact menu selection it is under. Once you ungroup those two items, you can adjust both the width and height of either the label or the text box. Besides the width/height, you have control of all the items' properties.

    The easiest way I have found to do the adjustment is to place everything where I want it, and either select a number of objects and adjust their properties all at once, or adjust one, copy its properties and select all the remaining objects and paste the properties all at once. Either way works.

    After you ungroup the label from the field you can also select all the label objects and select "size to fit" from the right click menu.
