Hello all,

I am using the mint_idea template and I wanna decrease the distance between the question and the dropdown list. I have tried changing the margin on 'paragraphs', on 'survey-question', on 'list-dropdown-flexible' but nothing changed. I also added
.list-dropdown {
margin-left: 1em;
margin-top: 0;
}

as the list-dropdown question type wasnt defined, but it didnt make any change...

any help please?

thanx in advance !

Can you activate the survey for us to see?

Hello Tony and all,

I have attached an image from the questionnaire with my problem. the questionnaire is in Greek so you dont understand much but I think you can see what's my problem. The distance (in red line in pic) between the question (for example the 1.9) and the dropdown list of answers is large, and even much larger than the distance between the dropdown list and the next question (distance in green line in pic). So it;s not very "comfortable" for the eye and the user should pay much more attention and effort to find which dropdown list belongs to each question, which is tiring especially in a large questionnaire (70 questions), like mine. So I would like to decrease the distance between the question and the dropdown list (the red lines in pic). By changing the margin on "paragraphs" I managed to increase the distance between the dropdown list and the next question (the green line in pic) but it had no effect on the "red" distance.

Any suggestion is most welcome !

thanx

I'm afraid I can't help without seeing the source code. I have no way to know if the space is caused by styles or inserted HTML elements (<p>, <br />...).

I would need to see the survey itself live (or a sample survey).

To tighten up the dropdowns, add the following to the end of template.css
p.question {
	margin-top: 0;
}

And then to pull up the radio lists:
.survey-question-answer ul {
	margin-top: 0;
}

And now the survey has been de-activated so I can't test.
