The current (as of 25.x) way the form UIs (whether for settings or trackers fields or whatever) lets the tiki help icons "after the setting widget" wrap onto the next line when the widget is full-width, is problematic for a number of reasons, including:
My guess is that Tiki lets those things wrap when it shouldn't (maybe using some sort of non-breaking space character, or a div containing both the form field and the related things?)
The only exception I can envision is long explanation labels, those make sense to have on a separate line.
Please see the attached screenshots (and mockups), this will make the problem self-explanatory; compare image no1 vs no2, and particularly no3 vs no4 which illustrate very well the change in the "global feeling" and compactness of the layout when you do this for many fields.

Image no5 shows how this problem also affects Tiki Tracker list tables and such where there are editable cells with clickable icons/buttons in those cells. Those shouldn't wrap either, they should stay on the last line of the contents (or maybe vertically centered in the cell, or top-aligned?) :

Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
