    When i have created an option for further comments - is it possible that upon filling the field of visibility that the form takes a new line, therefore allowing all the text to remain visible?

    It is actually not possible to create a new line when the character limit of a text box field exceeded. You can increase the limit but that should distort the layout of your form in a bad way.

    I am not sure if you are using the text box field intentionally here. Because what should work better in your case is a text area field. It is also a text box itself but a much larger one. Please see how it looks:



    You can locate text area field here on the form builder:

    I hope this helps.
