A Form Section Control was added to Service Request Detail Applet.
After adding this control, the applet exposed uneven spacing between some of its controls.
Also, some section headers appear as right-aligned rather than left-aligned.
When removing the Form Section Control again, the issue disappears.
Things tried so far (without success):
- Remove the controls and add them back to re-align them
- Place the controls in the same line
- Changing the HTML Height property of all controls to the same value
This step allowed to restore the even spacing:
- Modify the CSS through the Developer Tools in the browser
