    Hi Ronen,

    Unfortunately, the xml formsbuilder is not a wysiwyg tool. That means you ahve always keep in mind that you create html pages with all limitations of html. You create a complex table structure with the forms builder (you can see the empty table structure alignement by pressing a toolbar icon).

    An example: if you want to align two text fields,

    you drop on the forms screen two text fields, but they are in html not very well aligned:

    Through the width of the fields the first goes from 0-20% of the page and the second one from 30-50% - thats not what you want. You can make the first field smaller (width: one raster element) but this don't help very much

    You can group the fields together (then they stick) by marking both and right click + press group.

    But then they have no space between: insert a third field with &%160; text and the "display html" property enabled.

    I hope that helps you.

    Regards

    Ralf
