Align fields side by side

Hello,

I am trying to add a new field in a table and I want it to align to the right of the existing field but it will only align above or below it.

I think I have been through every single setting in Livecycle and I cannot get it to work. I have literally spent HOURS trying to sort this out. Does anyone know what I need to change to allow the field to be side by side?

Thanks in advance

Christine

Hi there,

if you want to add a field side by side and when it reaches the right end of the page then it adds it below:

You need to have a flowed subform, with a flow direction set to western text, containing a subform inside that you can add instances.

Subform1 (flowed subform>western text)

     \-> Subform2 (you can add instances and contains a field within)

Each time you add a Subform2 instance, it will be added to the right of the previous instance, as long as it fits the parent's width, otherwise it will flow underneath.

Hope this will help.

Thanks loather. The problem was cause I had it in a subform and the flow to western text worked! Honestly I spent HOURS looking for that setting!

Thanks for your help though!

Magus069 probably has the correct answer, but provided you are not adding in a flowed subform it should just be a case of enabling "snap to object" in the drawing aids, then drag+drop.

You do seem to need to zoom in or out a bit if the design is "busy", to make sure it is snapping correctly.
