    Hello Marc,

    First off, I'd like to welcome you to Jotform. We hope you enjoy your experience with us.

    Looking at your form, it seems that you have used preset fields such as Full Name and Address. I am afraid but there is no option to change the width of those fields as they are, like I said, preset.

    You can, however, add new fields such as textboxes whose width can be easily configured. To do so, just click on the field and then click the Size button in the toolbar to set the width and the number of characters accepted.

    Click OK then save your form.


    Alternatively, you may also shrink the fields so they take up less space in your form.

    To shrink a field:

    1.  Right-click on the field that you want to shrink
    2.  Choose Shrink in the context menu that appears



    Hope you find this post useful. Let me know if there's anything else I can assist you with. Thank you for using Jotform.
