    Full Name field not full size in form

    Asked by SMDC on February 23, 2017 at 03:36 PM

    Please see if you can discover why the Full Name basic field is not full size inside my form. 

    Right now I'm using a short text entry because the Full name field is so scrunched you can't read the subtitles. 

    This field is also not full size.  It's hard to see what you're typing in the field.

    What would make this happen?

    It's not happening in other forms.


    Thank you for your help.

    You can use the Full Name field and we can give you a custom CSS code to increase the width of the field you want. 

    Here's an example of customize Full Name field:

    If you want to use the current Short Text Entry field of your form, add this custom CSS code:

    .form-textbox { 

        max-width : none !important;

    #input_8 { 

        width: 400px !important;
