    Can't change size of input field in a matrix

    Asked by tvc_wine on February 15, 2017 at 04:03 PM

    I inserted a matrix on the PayPal summary page and have used a calculation to insert text.  

    1. the input field isn't large enough for all the text to display and there doesn't seem to be a way to increase the input area. 

    2. when I select numeric text (I had wanted a 3rd column to display a number), my text won't display at all so I've had to revert to making the rows all text (and deleted the 3rd column in case it wouldn't display a number).

    Very frustrated!

    Thank you,

    Sylvia

    Add the following CSS code into your form's custom CSS code area:

    #id_200 table.form-matrix-table input{

    width: 200px !important;

    }

    Example:

    "2. when I select numeric text (I had wanted a 3rd column to display a number), my text won't display at all so I've had to revert to making the rows all text (and deleted the 3rd column in case it wouldn't display a number)."

    Not sure what you are referring to, are you trying to display a different type of field in a third column within the matrix? If that is the case, that is not possible, there can be only one field type in all columns.

    Let us know if you need more help.
