I came upon a stumbling block a few days ago during an effort to re-engineer some old InfoPath forms into Nintex for O365 forms. The culprit was the Choice Field Control. It does NOT work the same in both applications.
Initial Control Display
I got this when I dragged and dropped the choice control onto the Nintex Form for O365 canvas - and was initially stumped. Where are my choices??
Looking at the control's properties, I knew it had more than one choice.
So, I figured that it must be a sizing thing - and I was correct. I was able to see all of the choices by re-sizing the boundaries of the control.
Vertical vs. Horizontal Layout
That's great, but I wanted the layout of the choices to be horizontal, not vertical. That was easy in InfoPath. Each option was separated by a carriage return. Simply deleting the carriage returns between choices produced a horizontal line of choices. Unfortunately that's NOT the case with Nintex forms. In Nintex, you have to do a few more steps.
Now I the control is formatted the way I want. It's certainly not as easy as deleting carriage returns, but its not too difficult to switch between the vertical and horizontal orientation of a Choice control in Nintex Forms for O365.
I hope this article helps reduce your stumbling blocks when re-engineering from InfoPath to Nintex.
