Textarea variable for adjusting its width

    Hello to you,
    Me again!
    I have a very long, detailed form (URL link attached).
    There are a great number of large text boxes in this form. I can widen all text areas in the Advanced Editing mode, however this applies it to all and makes the date and address fields, for example, way too wide and messy.
    I have looked up your FAQ and have a rough idea of how I might go about this, however just need some careful guidance with respect to time saving coding.
    Incidentally, where do I find the toolbar, referenced in one of your answers?
    Thank you in advance,

    You have to target the class selector. In this case, you have to inject the following custom CSS codes:

    textarea, .form-textarea {

    width: 100% !important;

    max-width: 100% !important;


    You can use a fix value for the width, like 650px. 

    You can inject the codes in the form by following our steps here: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    As for the toolbar, you mean the Preference tab on version 3? I cannot seem to find the thread about this question.
