  2. Make fields smaller in record entry form

    Hi I'm a new user, building my first App. I want to create a specific layout for new record entry and existing record edits. Some text lines contain only a few characters so they should be small (to state the obvious). When I drag the field from the arrow on the bottom right, the field will not "shrink." I can make fields bigger, but not smaller. The layout I'm stuck with is not optimal for space and will make it hard for users to enter information since my database has many required fields.

  3. Font sizes in Forms

    The knowledge base says "Next, if you wish to further customize your form, click the pencil icon in the upper right corner of any field or section. From here, you can edit the title, and the font and background colors. " But far as I can tell, there are not font style or size controls. Does this mean that I cannot change the size of the fonts in form fields? Seems like a really basic feature.

  9. Adding Multiple field in the form on option to add more

    I have a form to add multiple items with their price and some other common input for the items.In the current process I need to fill up all the information in the form for more than one item. Is there any way where I can open the field to add multiple item along the price at the same time with other common input? the item field need to be the text field so I cant add the check box here. The multiple item can be stored in separate line in the table but from user side it would be faster…

  10. Set Today's date

    I know there is a function now() to put todays date but that will put the same date in the whole column.There is a date field in my table, what I want to do is to make the date in the form automatic so the user don't need to input the date every time whenever they make a new record.
    Is there any option to do that?
    Thanks

  13. Date & Time Field - Only 30 Minute Increments

    The Date & Time field only allows values in 30 minute increments.
    There is no other field to track the time of the day.

    How do you enter a time different than the 30 min increments, like 12:05pm?

  15. Can I limit the available options in a form field based on a user/user with criteria?

    Can I create a user database containing country assignments for each user, then have a form field for another table have its dropdown options be dependent on the user filling the form in? Pretty much is a there a way to do a calculated field/calculated dropdown based on the user filling the form in?

  16. Is there a way to modify existing values of a drop-down list?

    It looks that the only way to modify is to delete the old one and create a new value option.

  19. Copy/share a list of dropdowns in a table?

    In my database application, one table, I have 3 columns which are calling for states, because there is a project state, there is an address of the engineer and there is an address for the owner. Currently, I have to go in and manually enter the dropdown for each columns as 50 states in US plus all Canadian province. If there was a feature to copy or share the list choices in the table, or among different tables, it would be greatly useful. Also for standard fields like US states, if it was a pre created dropdown, I could use,…
