    Hey there!


    The length of the form will be based on the number of fields you use  and how you align or space them as well as the size of the labels and header.


    But you can adjust the form width by clicking on Form Style and then Form Width. You can specify the width that you want.

    In addition to Morian's response, I would also like to point out that you can further adjust both the height and width of the form via an iFrame. It allows you to control both the height and width of the form. You will note that you can see the orgin of the width of the form. Just adjust the number value next to the height and width.


    <iframe id="JotFormIFrame" onload="window.parent.scrollTo(0,0)" allowtransparency="true" src="//form.jotform.us/form/31396665480159" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:465px; border:none;" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    Something else I just thought of that may also come in handy is if you view the Form's Section Size to give you a general idea for determining the form size itself. Most browsers will display the form's height and width when viewing this automatically.

    (1) You can view this by right-clicking on the form's page then select " Inspect Element " .

    (2) Now find the line labeled " form-section " or hover over  the code until it highlights and displays the form section width depending on what you've set it to.
