    How can I expand the "other" input box of a particular checkbox field in my form?

    Asked by Michele_Binkley on July 05, 2017 at 05:39 PM


    Thank you for all your support! Ya'll are more than helpful. I have a field that I would like to expand to twice its current size, but only that field. It is on page 4 and the question is on the screenshot.

    Thank you again!

    If I'm understanding your concern correctly, you would like to increase the width of the "Other" input box of that checkbox field in the image you provided.

    The input box can only be expanded with the help of CSS codes.

    Please inject the following CSS codes to your form — How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    #cid_263 .form-single-column span:last-child {

        min-width: 300px !important;


    You can adjust the "min-width" value based on your preferences.

    Also, I tried testing the codes above to a clone version of your form and it turns out there is a code error in the existing CSS codes in your form that is why it didn't work at first. To fix that, please see the image below:
