    how to change default size of a text area

    Asked by dwooster on March 25, 2014 at 06:33 AM

    Is it possible to change the default size of a text area so that when the form is viewed it shows in that size?

    I change it in edit mode. Save it. But it always returns to the default size.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Try to inject a CSS code to adjust the size of the text when viewed.


    font-size: 100%;


    or if you just want to change the size of the text of a specific text area you need to get the field id. Here's a sample where input_1 is the field id of the textarea.
