    Is there a way to auto adjust the long text field height in jotform when viewed on mobile devices?

    The long text field we are using on the form have a default value and if its viewed on phone the texts gets cut-off.

    We can adjust the height on the form built however there's way too many blank spaces when viewed on desktop or ipad.

    Please advise.

    To which form is your issue related to? 

    The height of the Long Text Entry field can be adjusted with CSS. You can add the following CSS code to your form and if necessary adjust the height value:

    @media screen and (max-width: 480px){

    .form-textarea {

        height: 200px!important;
