    Text box margins auto-aligning

    cjl.leader

      When I create a new text box in a form the margin of the label is being forced to align with the label above.  Some of my labels are longer and some shorter, so I would like to be able to change these independently of one another.  When I put multiple text boxes with labels on the same line/row I am able to change the margins of the 2nd and 3rd label, but still not the 1st.  What am I doing wrong?

          Hi;

           

          You are not doing anything wrong, this is how it works.  All of the fields that are both A) at the beginning of a row and B) have labels aligned Left or Right share the same "caption reserve" (term we use for this common label width).  This is how it was designed and how it remains for now, we do know it is not ideal and is a little confusing, I am going to write up an FAQ on it, and it is on our list of potential feature enhancements.

           

          Thanks,
