We have some GMSC forms developed by GMSC 2014. The forms have combobox components with help button. In GMSC 2014, the component is displayed correctly; however, in GMSC 2016 the "help" button drops down to the next line which breaks the form's layout.
Here is how it shows in GMSC 2014
The form in GMSC 2016
We also notice that in 2016, if we resize the window to be big enough and reload the form, the layout will show correctly, but resizing is undesiable and it is not good for end users.
Please note that we did follow the post (http://community.hexagongeospatial.com/t5/Developer-Discussions/Default-workflow-design-behavior-in-...) to make the GMSC 2016 displays forms with the same layout as GMSC 2014 does and it works fine for other form components, but not for components with help button
We appreciate all ideas and suggestions on this issue.

such changes of our CSS files are not supported.
The "empty space" is reserved/needed for the workflow link groups.
Please increase the width value of your browse workflow action or set it to the default value (empty). The GMSC's default value is 1220x700px.

Few of our clients forms presently use workflow link groups as the forms are principally for feature specific attribute display.
Any other ideas for resolving appreciated.

the behavior might be related to the responsive design in 2016. Have you already tried to tweak it like described here?

your mentioned change is related to one of GMSC 2016's highly requested features, the responsive design. I agree an information about the respsonsive design rules would be helpful. We will check our documentation and highlight the information about the repsonsive design rules (e.g minimum resolution) or add it if it is missing.
I understand that it would be nice if a workflow without a link group does not reserves the grey space at GMSC's browseWorkflow window.
However, sometimes we struggle with technical limitations and therefore we cannot provide a generic solution for the product.
If your clients are not happy and they claim about that, than one possible solution could be the definition of a custom template. E.g. where you remove the workflow link group.
Please feel free to create a Development ticket if you want that we create the custom template for you.

they use already that workaround and talking about the side-effects and as I mentioned before, we don't support changes of our CSS files.
The creation of a custom theme is the correct solution.

Thanks Steve - understood, I understand the responsive design is desirable and eggs break when putting such design changes in place.
We will have a play with the templates. Have had good outcomes with creating shared views in past, but havn't invested time in templates to date.
