Collection of Questions: field labels / alignment / disabled / length

    I looked through the forum and documentation... but could not seem to find the answers to these Questions.

    1. Is it possible to control the "length" of a form field. e.g.: make a "Zip Code" field shorter than an "Address" textbox? It is common to want different fields to be of different length depending on the contained content.

    2. Field labels: In the situation of the "Name" and "Address" Advanced Fields... How can I position field labels ABOVEthe textbox? The default seems to be below, but it looks funky to me.

    3. Can I include a field, but make it "Disabled".. e.g.: I would to put Terms of Service in a viewable, scrollable, but uneditable textarea.

    4. We have a very long Terms of Service we have to put on the form... when I make the TOS content the "default text" in a form textarea... the form will not save. It seems to be getting "stuck". I have waited for 30minutes multiple times and it never saves. It will save without problem if i remove that long textarea. Some sort of timeout seems to be occuring

    5. Is it possible to NOT show the title of a form on the page?

    6. Do you publish a product roadmap so we can get excited about new features?

    Most fields have a Field Size option: http://grab.by/a7Hf For those that do not, you can use CSS to manually resize the fields.

    2. Field labels: In the situation of the "Name" and "Address" Advanced Fields... How can I position field labels ABOVEthe textbox? The default seems to be below, but it looks funky to me.

    This would require some CSS to target the labels and adjust their positioning. Here is a topic that discussing how to target the sub-labels. A little experimentation should get you the rest of the way there with the positioning.

    How much text are you adding here? Could you use http://pastie.org and post a link so we can test on our end?

    5. Is it possible to NOT show the title of a form on the page?

    When building the shortcode to embed the form, just uncheck the display form title option: http://grab.by/a7Hv

    We do not currently do so, but thanks for the suggestion! :)
