    How can I change the width of the checkbox description?

    Asked by JFedGMW on January 03, 2017 at 10:45 AM

    I've managed to add CSS to widen the area for the checkbox label, but I've been unable to change the width of the checkbox description. Can you help? Thanks

    I checked your form and it looks like you have already extended the width of your checkbox options.  If you would like to further customize the width, you can add  the following code to your form:

    #cid_47, #cid_39, #cid_40, #cid_41, #cid_42 {
        width : 400px;
    }

    Adjusting the width value until the options show to your liking.

    Yes, I cracked the code for specific questions. Is there a line of code that I could use to adjust the width for all of the checkbox questions?

    The following will change all the checkbox option widths:

    .form-checkbox-item {
       width: 350px;
    }
