    To change the width of a text box, click it and in the toolbar click the Size button, change the value to suit your requirements and save the form:

    I hope this answered your question.

    Hi John,

    You have to manually adjust the width of your Free Text HTML field in order to achieved that. Here, I've cloned your form and made some workaround for you to check if this correct or not.

    How about this form version: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/30044905791958

    1. I have injected this CSS codes to the form:

    #id_30 {

    width: 650px;

    text-align: justify;

    line-height: 20px;

    }

    2. I have edited the HTML source of the Free Text HTML field and modify it like this; http://pastie.org/5627396

    Clone it if this is what you want: How to Clone a Form from a Web Page

     

    Thanks

    Here's a visual guide on how to edit your Free Text HTML source;

    1. Click the HTML field.

    2. Click "Edit HTML" button on the field

    3. Click the "HTML" button, see this image

    4. A window will appear, there you can add extra HTML codings.

     

    Thanks

    Hi John,

    I forgot to include the guide, here's how to inject a custom CSS codes to a form: How to Inject Custom CSS Codes

    Those extra characters are part of your website; that if you click on it, it will open a window with a link to this page: http://www.reenoserve.com/GHYC/Cookie.html

    Edit the page and find this exceprt of the codes and removed if needed.

    onclick="window.open(\'../Cookie.html\',\'PAC\',\'width=500,height=600,toolbar=no,location=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=no

     

    Thanks
