Portal won't display field label?  Also, displays all fields horizontally?

Post

     Hi all,

     I am new to Filemaker and am using the trial to see if I can handle it since I am not fantastic with computers.  Hope I can get help with a simple issue.

     I created 4 tabs on a layout.  I created a portal in one but when I select the fields to be displayed (there are about 20) there are no labels associated with the fields.  Is that normal?  I participated in a webinar yesterday and when the woman did this, the label and field showed up together.  Do I really have to create a text label manually for each?

     Also, the fields are next to each other in one horizontal line so they're all squished (very technical, i know).  During the webinar yesterday, the moderator's fields appeared vertically so it all fit in the tab.

     What am I doing wrong?  Such a basic thing I'm sure, but I don't know what to do. HELP please!!!

     Thanks!
