Has anybody noticed annoying and ugly form design issues lately???

Recently, I have noticed that my forms across multiple apps have started to look... well, ugly. Field names are wrapping. Fields are being squeezed closer together. Embedded reports field headers are getting jumbled. It is annoying me and I think QuickBase has gotten uglier on my screen for some reason.

Here is the thing though. If I zoom way out (like 75%) on my browser (Chrome) everything looks prettier again but I can't see all the finer details very well. If I zoom way in (like 150%) it looks prettier again, but I can only see a couple details at a time.

It is frustrating because, I like my QuickBase at 100%. I don't like my QuickBase too small, or too big. I like my QuickBase just right. Lately though, when my QuickBase is at just right size, something just isn't right. My QuickBase is ugly at just right. Anyone else having this problem? 

I have attached a couple screen shots. Please tell me why my QuickBase got ugly and if there is anything I can do to fix it. My momma always told me you can't fix ugly so I am really worried at this point.

Really weird... Did you report this to QB Support team?
Yea, they seemed to not be aware of the issue.

Same issue. 
Same issue.  The fields are wrapping for no reason. Note the Store Division and Store Banner fields are wrapping when there is tons of white space on the form.

We have the same issue
from QB Support

Hi Mark,

Yes, the thread is referring to a bug we are currently investigating. The bug ID is:

QBE011305: Chrome: Field labels are getting oddly wrapped in the newest versions of Chrome

The issue is specific to Chrome Version 58.0.3029.81 (64-bit) and Chrome Canary (V60.x). So the workaround for now would be to use a different browser. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Any updates on this?  We find Chrome the best/fastest browser for Quickbase and other sites and really want to continue using it.

Yes please provide an update on when this will be addressed. We are having to use IE as a workaround and would like to be able to go back to Chrome as soon as possible.

Not fixed.
I think that the regular fields on a form are better, but not the embedded reports.  Do you plan to report it to support? 
I am still facing this issue.

You can uncheck "Allow field labels to wrap" in the form Properties , "Properties tab"
John, this option is already unchecked. :)
