Form properties improvement suggestions
Description of problem:
Please refactor alignment settings in Form properties section of form modeler to make them more understandable. Currently these settings are very chaotic and unnecessarily complex.
I see the following issues:
1) 'Label fields position' sellect affects field allignment for all 3 alignment options (Default, Aligned fields, Not aligned) even though it makes sense only for 'Aligned fields' option.
2) All 3 options (Default, Aligned fields and Not aligned) work exactly the same - when they are selected, the label is displayed in place which is specified by 'Label fields position'
3) The 'Automatic' option in Label fields position has the same function as would be expected from (Not aligned or Default radio button)
I suggest the following refactoring to simpify and improve understandability of these settins (see screenshot attached)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
BPMS 6.0.0 ER4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open some form in FormModeler and go to 'Form properties.
I understand this is a lot of steps, but I checked, that the underlying logic is localized in one class, so the changes should not be that hard to make.

Form fields predefined layout. Aligned option

Form fields custom layout
In the attached images we can see the changes in the tab form properties. The select with the label disposition options and the checkbox about the alignment are hidden when the custom radio is checked.
Ok, the the refactoring is present in BPMS 6.0.0 ER5 and is working as indented.
