      How do I move a text box to align beside the one above it?

          Are you trying to move a text box that is below another so that it is now next to the one above it or are you trying to move the text box so that it is still on the same row but now aligns with the text field on the row above it?  The steps for each are as follows:

          Move a text field the be besides the one above:

          • Create the two fields
          • Select the lower text box
          • Using your mouse click (and hold) on the grey area that is on the left side of the text box (grab the field) and move the mouse to the right side area of the text box above.  You will see a small blue vertical line appear when you are in the "drop zone".  Release the mouse button and your fields will now be side by side.  Field resizing may occur in order to fit the two fields. 

          Move a text field to align with a field from the row above (multiple columns):

          • Create your form fields
          • Add a blank Formatted Text field
          • Select the Formatted Text field
          • Using your mouse click (and hold) on the grey area that is on the left side of the Formatted Text field (grab the field) and move the mouse to the left side area of the text box above.  You will see a small blue vertical line appear when you are in the "drop zone".  Release the mouse button and your fields will now be side by side.  Resize the Formatted Text field to get the alignment of your Text Boxes to be just right.
