    How can I expand the "other" field so people can see what they are writing

    Asked by carolina on August 18, 2014 at 07:02 AM

    Dear Jotform, 

    I'm creating a questionnaire for my thesis.

    Inside one question, I'm giving options to the subjects, which they can select two or more options.But also, I want to give them the freedom to add a new option is their answer is not provided. So I allow them the option, "Other" but inside the jotform format, I can;t expand the space in which the subjects can write their alternative option. Could you please help me?

    I believe you were referring to this form http://www.jotformeu.com/form/41921345573354? You can inject a CSS to expand the textbox field. You can view our guide here on how to find your field ID's http://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-find-Field-IDs-Names.

    Please try this CSS code:
