I am using Connect App for Windows Desktop, and creating a Survey based off a feature service, and am embedding the Survey into an Operations Dashboard. 

Is there any way to control the spacing between Survey Questions? See attached image

Hi James

It seems those fields are "read only"? If they are then you could use a note field with HTML to improve the visual appearance of those fields whilst setting the actual fields to hidden... This way you can add all the read-only attributes into one note field and just put breaks <br> in-between them. You could even use a table html element to make it look neater.

Deon,

That is a nifty trick, that will help with the read only fields for sure, thank you.

Any way to adjust the height of the space between other questions that are not read only?

I think only a few question types use the height parameter:

https://doc.arcgis.com/en/survey123/desktop/create-surveys/esricustomcolumns.htm

"The body::esri:style column accepts a height parameter for map questions and image questions using the signature appearance."

Maybe you could experiment with setting the font size of those items?

you could use some of the text formatting techniques:

Thank you, yes I did see at the bottom it says this..

Controlling the height of questions is not supported in the Survey123 web app.

so I was wondering if there was a work around

for the web app interface.. but I guess not so much... I appreciate your response though.. 

I will try the HTML for the read only ones at least. hopefully that will help a bit...
