    Can I enlarge the text boxes in the matrix form?

    Asked by cdopke on June 19, 2014 at 02:02 PM

    1. I am trying to build a form that allows for longer text responses in a matrix format. Is it possible to make the size of the text box much larger?

    2. Is it possible to add hover text to each individual cells of the row and column headers in a matrix? I filled out the hover text but it only allowed on entry for the entire grid.

    1. That's possible CSS Inject. How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    You can use the following to make matrix textbox wider.

    .form-matrix-values .form-textbox {

    width: 200px;


    Feel free to change 200px to your preference if you want to adjust the textbox width.

    Result would be like the following.

    2. No it is not possible. We do not have such feature. The easiest workaround for that would be to download your form source code and modify how the hover text works for the entire fields or create a custom script for it.
