    How can I increase the visible width of the text field and control the maximum number of characters in a matrix?

    The matices in the form to which I believe you're referring each contain dropdown selectors, not text boxes. If you want to widen those, inject the following CSS:

    .form-matrix-table .form-dropdown {
    width: 200px;

    You would need to adjust the value of the width (highlighted above) to suit. Is this what you meant? If not, please elaborate.
