I would like to be able to set the Item Width in pixels instead of as a percentage.

We did this for a reason Jim. This way when you adjust the width of your form, all elements scale automatically. If it was done by pixels, you would have to manually adjust each element to make them fit.

How about the option to choose how you want it? Pixels "or" percentages and those that want it in pixels will just have to be responsible for altering each element themselves? Just a thought :)

That would be a MAJOR enhancement. If you want that level of customization, when you export the form, you can hack the CSS files and tweak them all you like. ;)

.

I see what you are saying, the reason I mentioned it is that I am making a simple query form which is 200px wide to go into the left hand side column of a webpage, but I have sorted it now.

The being able to choose the colours of the labels etc is neat, however, when you select each label to change the colour, it doesn't pick the previous one you used, and if you try the copy and paste method with the hex code it throws an error as in attached image.

Hi:

I was playing a bit with the new version of WFB 1.0.

When you drag an element onto the form such as a title, you have the properties window on the right of the screen. Within those properties are the color changer.

How about having a traditional color cube option on the picker? This would make it much easier for us folks with limited vision to navigate.

Also wouldn't it be easier to be able to click on the element that you have placed on the form, and its properties show up there? Again, this would make it easier for people with limited vision to use the product.

I would still like to see the classis form builder menu and selection system available in this new version. That was much easier to navigate and see for the same reasons.

Besides that this is a good product... just trying to make it a better one for those of us with disabilities.

Howard:)
