    I have created a new form for Home Building Plastics website but can't work out how to make the lower text box (Comments / other details) extend out to the right so that it's aligned with the upper boxes.

    Can you explain how to do this please?

    Please inject this code to achieve it: 

    textarea, [data-type="control_textarea"] .form-input-wide{

        max-width: initial !important;



    I hope this helps.

    I added the code and the lower text box now exceeds the size of the upper ones! See screenshot below.

    As said in my earlier ticket, I want the lower box to align with the upper ones.

    How do I do this?

    Hello Paul - We can't see email attachments. To post screenshots, you have to post it straight to your thread:

    Try changing the CSS codes to the following:

    .form-textarea, .form-input-wide {

        min-width: 96% !important;
