    I am working a Form which has layout defined.
    The layout appear fine in edit mode and preview mode, but when I drag the form on to the page it looses all layout related formatting.
    I am using Sitefinity 4.1SP1.

    Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug in Sitefinity?

    Thanks

    Works fine for me, do you have some global css style rules which would be overriding the base form structure?

    What does firebug show?...

    Firebug doesn't load any styles related to layout specific classes like "sf_colsIn sf_2cols_1in_50"

    I don't have any Global CSS that overrides the css of layouts.

    Thanks

    Hi Venkata,

    This bug is fixed in 4.1 SP2. You can either upgrade or you can link "LayoutsBasics.css" which I have attached to the page with the form manually. You can use CSS widget to link the css file.

    Let us know if you need further help.

    Thank you for the update.
    I wanted to make sure if its a bug or if I was doing something wrong. I already took the route of copying styles which were getting included in the preview mode and moving them to my own stylesheet. But I will use your stylesheet which is more comprehensive.

    Thanks again

    HI,
    I tried applying the css with the css widget.
    but still it doesn't fix the problem.
    We are using sitefinity 4.2

    As far as I know the forms styles are in the basic Theme. As soon as you have your own theme you need to configure the syles yourself.
    Could this be the problem?
