Fields on responsive form not breaking as expected

[This may be a duplication of a post I thought I'd made earlier, but I haven't been able to find it, so maybe it didn't get posted. Apologies for any confusion.]


I am setting up a responsive form for a tablet and am confused about how it orients the fields in landscape vs. portrait mode. The form is using 12 columns to give me more flexibility in how I size the data cards.


In landscape mode, the data cards break as shown below.

In portrait mode, the fields are arranged like this:

I expected the landscape mode to basically do what the portrait mode does, which is fill up the row with data cards and then break to a new row that also fills with data cards.


I'm not sure what I'm missing so any help is appreciated.

There is a width to fit property on the data card. Can you please make sure that is enabled?

Your 'Columns' setting for the form - I will assume this is 4, as after the fourth field it breaks to a new line - you should either set this to 12, or insert a blank, invisible custom card after every 3rd card.


Please could you give that a try and let me know if you run into any issues,

I set WidthFit to "true" on each data card. This the result on the tablet in landscape:

The columns setting on the Form was 12.
