    Hi letaxi,

    You can increase the size (or length) of the text box in order to fit in longer street names. Just go to the Properties of the text box and click the Size button to adjust the length of the text box.

    We hope you find this information helpful. Let us know if we can be of further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Hi,

    Are you talking about turning this:

    into this:

    You can change that by clicking on the field in your form then clicking the Size button in the toolbar. Set the value to something higher, say 30 or 50, to accommodate longer options in your autocomplete field.

     

    Hope this post sounds useful to you. Feel free to contact us again if you have other queries or concerns.

     

    Regards,
    Neil

    Hi letaxi,

    What I can suggest is for you to break down the alphabetical list of 1000 streets to smaller groups. Please check out this sample form for a demonstration of what I have in mind:

    http://www.jotform.com/form/11861701338?

    If you like the idea, you can clone this form for your own use. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for using JotForm!

    Thanks letaxi for your prompt feedback.

    I'm afraid this particular feature will remain unchanged even if you upgrade. Honestly, I'm not aware of any restrictions for the autocomplete field. So kindy try pasting the street names once again and let us know how it goes. 

    In case you're not yet aware of it, there are actually two ways to populate an autocomplete field:

    a. using the Properties dialog box

    b. using the toolbar

    Please try both methods and let us know how it goes also. 

    Thank you for using JotForm again and let us know if you need further assistance.
