    How do i make the text box wider for the question?

    Asked by Philip  on June 27, 2014 at 08:42 PM

    As you can see in my form here: http://form.jotform.co/form/41610931618855

    The question, Has your doctor ever..... is spread across about 5 lines. How do i make this text box wider? I have lots of questions in this form im building and if it is all squashed like that the form will be 10 pages long. Is there a way of making the text box wider. Now please excuse my lack of jotform/code knowledge but if you could make it as simple as possible that would be amazing im not very tech skilled :(

     

    Cheers

    Hello Phil,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to increase the width of the label for drop down question so that it appears in one line or two line to reduce the height. Is that correct?

    Please inject the following custom css code in your from to increase the width of your specific drop down question

    #label_18 {

    width: 333px !important;

    }

    You can increase / decrease the value of width "333" to change the width of your drop down label

    The following guide should help you inject custom css code in your form:  http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes
