Hi Everybody,

I'm making myself nuts trying to move the text "Gender" several spaces. I could do it with a series of   tags but I would prefer a CSS method if I can.
However, if I add "text-indent: 1.25rem;" statement to the ".input-group-text" class I indent everything, including the font-awesome icon. I don't want to do that, I just want to position the text "gender".

How do I do that in the CSS code?

HTML:
                    <div class="row">
                        <div class="col-sm-6 form-group">
                            <h1><span class="input-group-text"><i class="fa fa-transgender-alt" style="color: #0000FF" arial-hidden="true"></i>Gender</span></h1>
                        <div class="box1">
                                  <div class="form-check">
                                    <input type="radio" class="form-check-input" id="cGender1" name="cGender" value="No Answer" checked />
                                    <label class "form-check-label" for'cGender1'>Declined</label>
                                </div>
                                  <div class="form-check">
                                    <input type="radio" class="form-check-input" id="cGender2" name="cGender" value="Male" />
                                    <label class "form-check-label" for'cGender2'>Male</label>
                                </div>
                                  <div class="form-check">
                                    <input type="radio" class="form-check-input" id="cGender3" name="cGender" value="Female" />
                                    <label class "form-check-label" for'cGender3'>Female</label>
                                </div>
                            </div>
                         </div>


CSS:
.input-group-text {
    border-color: #000000 ;
    border-width: 0.125rem;
    background-color: #00FFCC;
    max-width: 3.00rem;
    font-family:  Cabin SemiBold, sans-serif;

Since you only gave css for the input-group-text' I don't know how this will affect other things. Try adding this to the CSS
Code:
h1{
    padding-left: 100px;
}

Hi BigDady,
Once again, you've pointed me in a good direction.
Putting the padding-left: 100px; comment inside the h1{ } class didn't work, it would move the whole block not just the text part.
What did work though, was to create a new class and place the padding-left: 100px; comment along with any other tweaks I wanted. I called the new class "spread".
Then I can just use a <span class="spread">TEXT</span> and it works just fine.
(I didn't know I could do that)
So thank you for your time with my issue. I appreciate you.

Why did write down attributes "class" and "for" for <label> in that way?
HTML:
<label class "form-check-label" for'cGender1'>Declined</label>
<label class "form-check-label" for'cGender2'>Declined</label>
<label class "form-check-label" for'cGender3'>Declined</label>

This is the correct notation so that <label> in the case of the "for" attribute will do its job properly.
In that way you can click even over the text to set mark as check in radio.
HTML:
<label class="form-check-label" for="cGender1">Declined</label>
<label class="form-check-label" for="cGender2">Male</label>
<label class="form-check-label" for="cGender3">Female</label>

Hi VBService

If you meant the use of different quotation marks ".." and '..' , I did correct this in my code.
It didn't appear to behave any differently than I expected but that is with minimal testing. If
it started to twerk, I would never find it again.
Thanks for taking the time to reply.

not exactly, you just forgot use = (equal sign) ;)

attribute="value"


all entries mean the same and are correct
attribute=value
attribute="value"
attribute='value'

If you <label> start working properly, check what you can do ;) e.g.
