What are my custom design options in NINTEX Forms?

I'm currently in trial mode for Nintex Forms.  My company is trying out Nintex for Office 365 but so far, I have no desire to purchase a license.  I, however, have a customer who is on Nintex for SharePoint On Prem.  Despite my recommendation to do otherwise, they insist on having their form designed with this tool.  With that said, so far using this platform is extremely frustrating, so perhaps the Nintex Community can solve some mysteries and clarify things for me (crossing fingers).  Maybe it's a better tool than I think.  While the form definitely has more flexibility to design the look and feel with HTML, it doesn't seem to have the same ease of design in terms of placement and manipulation of fields like in InfoPath.

There are no preset form layouts to start from for the Desktop.  If I select "Add More Layouts" there only preset ones for mobile devices.  If I wanted to have a multi-column form, how would I go about adding a column? Do I have to do all of that through HTML and CSS? 

  1. The Responsive Form option - There seem to be no option to add/remove rows, change the width and height of form. Please Help.
  2. Once you've created your list in SharePoint and begin to create your form in Nintex, how do you add and/or remove rows on the form so you can put in new controls? I can't seem to just insert a row like I can in InfoPath.  For example, if I have "Name, Phone, DOB, but I forgot to add Email and I want to insert the Email field on a row in between Phone and DOB, I have to delete everything and re-add in the order I want.  Is this the only way? 
  3.  Why can't you drag and drop controls to new locations on the form?
  4. I have discovered how to add a repeating section.  Now, how do you configure this repeating section?  For example, in InfoPath, I can make this field two columns and several rows that connect to a data connection with two data types, , i.e. "Asset" in column 1 and "Asset ID" in column 2.  How do I accomplish this in Nintex ? 

Thanks for your help!
