There has to be a better way

Post by Hbrownell » Tue Oct 13, 2020 8:51 pm

Hey,

I'm trying to set up several forms to sign up for various lists and while they look great at the default layout. As soon as I click on any break point (720,400, and 320) the text gets tiny (responsive) and I have to individually go through and click each box, reset RWD, and reset the grid height. This takes forever and if I change anything in the form I have to do it all over again. There MUST be a better way to handle this or turn off responsive text at least?!

To turn of automatic text scaling go to Tools -> Options -> General and turn off: "Automatic scale new objects in other breakpoints"

You have been amazing every time I needed help. I'm getting V16 this week so I'm hoping there are more upgrades in it. :) Here's the link to the file

If you use layout grids you never need to use those manual page breakpoint layout grid is responsive and it has its own responsive breakpoint. Better responsive form.

Yea that is 100% possible you can write form data in csv file in your web hosted directory. just go to form setting in layout grid and then advanced then CSV and put the name of the csv file pulish it on the main directory then publish all the websites files. done.
