    How do I make the text box size of "other" option bigger?

    I have a multiple choice questions with an "other" option, but the text box does not fit the entire "other text" that I inputted.

    It is possible to increase the width of the "Other" field in check box. Please insert this custom CSS code:

    #cid_29 .form-checkbox-other-input {
       width: 90% !important;

    #cid_29 .form-single-column {
       width: 100% !important;

    .form-radio-item, .form-checkbox-item {
        max-width: none !important;
