You can make your form wider. This will allow you to use Labels Left and make the field label wider. To do this go to menu File-> Form Setup... This will open the Form Setup dialog. In this dialog is the Form Width field. Enter a value that you feel allows you to set the field labels the way you wish and click the OK button. An alternative way to resize the form is to hover your cursor over the right edge of the form. You should see your cursor change to the resize cursor. With the resize cursor showing click and hold your mouse/trackpad button. Move the cursor to the right to make the form wider. When the desired width is achieved release the mouse/trackpad button.
I hope this helps.
