    It would be very clean and efficient if I could place 2 sections next to each other. Has anyone encountered this before?

    Two selections for what?  What field type are you referencing?  Where are you using it?

    They are planning on having that option in the new UI Mercury, but until then you just have to be creative with your form layout to maximize the space.

    Sorry for the mix up before.

    I do this using script and it is pretty simple. Here is a demo that rearranges six sections into three rows of 2, 3 and 1 section per "section row".



    I will add this to the long list of demos I am bringing to Empower. Register for Empower and I will demo this in the hallway.

    Contact me off-world using the information in my profile if you need this implemented in your application:

    Did you bring this demo along to EMpower? Are you creating a pastie for this?
    Thanks

    This work was done for a client so there is no public demo. What I can tell you is that is used flexbox to rearrange the sections.

    A Complete Guide to Flexbox
    https://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/a-guide-to-flexbox/

    If I was asked to do this again I would probably use CSS Grid as all modern browsers support it and it is much more powerful:

    A Complete Guide to Grid
    https://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/complete-guide-grid/

    I would image that over time that QuickBase itself would start using CSS Grid for its dashboard, forms and other layouts as it makes complex layouts extremely east to implement.

    In any case if you need assistance with this feel free to contact me off world using the information in my profile:
