    Text too large to fit inside text fields

    Asked by motc on June 07, 2017 at 04:57 AM

    When respondents type in the short text fields, the text is too tall for the box and you can't read it. The box needs to be higher, and the text shorter so that you can read it.

    Looks like the height of your textboxes are too short to accommodate the text. To fix this, try injecting the following CSS Codes:

    .form-textbox {

        min-height: 30px !important;

        padding: 0 5px;

    Feel free to further adjust the height if needed.
