    How to change height of long text entry?

    Asked by tctrust on March 04, 2017 at 06:59 PM


    I need to reduce height of single field of text (#input_30). 

    In the form I have another field #input_32 which should stay with the current height.

    Please copy and paste the below CSS in your Custom CSS field: 

    textarea#input_30 {

    width: 150px;


    You can change the width to fit your needs. 

    Let us know if we can help you further.

    Thank you!

    I was able to replicate the issue. I believe you are referring to this field (see the screenshot below).

    Please select the field and then click the "Properties" icon. After that, go to the "Options" tab and please try to change the "Rows" and the "Columns" value to "80". Click the "Save" button to save the changes.

    You also need to remove this CSS code in your form:

    Here's the result:


    Hope that helps. Thank you.
