Forms: Customize the position and size of a form's field labels

In this article

Label position

To change the positioning of a form's field labels:

  1. Edit the form.
  2. Click on the Form Options tab.
  3. Click on the Look and Feel panel to expand it.
  4. From the Label Position dropdown, select how you want the labels to display next to each field.
    • Top (above field): this will display labels above each field. This is a good option if you're embedding your form, as it will give more room for the fields to display.
    • Side - left justified: this will display labels to the left of each field, with the label adjacent to the left margin of the page. This means there may be white space between the label and the field, depending upon the label size.
    • Side - right justified: this will display labels to the left of each field, with the label adjacent to the field itself. This means there may be white space between the left margin of the page and the label, depending upon the label size.
  5. Click the Save Changes button.
