Check box groups problem

I'm setting up a check box group as part of a form.  Some labels consist of more than one word (i.e.: "Podcast Consulting").  For reasons unknown to me, these items are displayed with each word on its own line.  I even resorted to listing each item on its own line but to no avail.  Here's a rough idea of what I'm talking about ("_" represents the checkbox). 

 _ Item1

 _ Item2

_ Item

   Number

   Three

_ Item

   Four

 Has anyone seen this?  Also…is it normal for the title of the group to display directly above the list instead of the left side of the form?

could you post the url please.

i guess, the reason for putting the 2nd word in a new line is related to the size (width) of the checkbox label (check the PDF CSS Guide for more info). 

yes, the title of the group is by default above the group. but with proper CSS you can adjust this too, of course.

Oliver…thanks for the quick reply and awesome plugin.  The link in question is http://www.rdbmedia.com/quote/.  I thought I found the correct location to change the width…but I'm no CSS whiz and could have been in the wrong place altogether.

As for the title…not a big deal but I'll check into adjusting this as well.

Firefox & Firebug are great tools to interactively play with CSS and immediately see the results.

Try changing the width in both label.cf-group-after {… and label.cf-group-after span {… to e.g. 150px.

The title you can adjust with ol.cf-ol li.cf-box-title {…

Good luck!

Oliver – this was what I was looking for.  I could have found this myself but I overlooked it!  Thanks for all of your help and keep up the good work.

I've adjusted the css label.cf-group-after {… settings to 350 in this example but the checkbox for the next line still shows at the end of the previous line. How do I correct this to drop down to the beginning of the next line please?
