    I think you're referring to the Free Text HTML field, this field:

    If yes, just simply inject the following custom CSS codes to your form:

    div#text_11 {

    line-height: 20px;



    Change 20px to a bigger value if you want to increase the height. Inject the codes by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes
