    Thanks for contacting us.

    If you are refering on how to make the text box field to manually shrink or expand, let me tell you that is an exclusive function of the Text area. However you can use the text area as your other fields, please take a look at this form:


    If that's what you are looking for, you can clone it and use it for your needs, use this guide to learn how to clone a form: How to clone an existing form from a URL

    Let us know if you need further assistance about this topic.
