    Hi ahmedaallam,

    To confirm, you would like to change to size of the hover box in your form?

    If that is the case You can use this CSS code to increase the width of the hover text box.

    .form-description {

       width: 175px;


    You can change the pixel size to your desired width.

    You can read how to inject the CSS code here: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes 


    I hope this helps! Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    It did not work in my case and i am looking for a way yo adjust every single hover box by itself, so one code can not adjust all boxes at the same time as some have few words while the others have more words!

    Hi ahmedallam,

    To change the text box size, you will need to look up the "Inspect Element" for each hover box.

    To get this you would right-click on the hover box and select "Inspect Element"


    Once you gather the codes, you would add the code from each box. The code would look like this:

    #cid_139.form-description {

       width: 175px;


    Please inform us if this assist you in achieving your desired result.

    Hi Shadea,

    Thank you so much but its not working in my case unfortunately!

    Here are the CSS i have 


    .form-line { background: none; }


    background:  transparent  !important;


    .form-description {width:175px;}

    #label_144,#label_145,#label_146,#label_147,#label_148,#label_149,#label_150{ width:300px!important; border:1px dotted black;}


    .form-all {



    repeat top left fixed;

    }.form-header-group {



    }.form-header {.form-description {

    top: -173px;

    left: 5px;

    min-width: 300px;


    .form-description-arrow {

    border-color: #CCC transparent transparent transparent;

    left: 24px;

    top: 177px;

    }.form-description-arrow-small {

    border-color: #F5F5F5 transparent transparent transparent;

    left: 27px;

    top: 173px;

    }.form-description-content {

    font-size: 14px;

    }.form-required {

    color: white !important;

    }#cid_139.form-description {width: 350px;}


    maybe i have a code is contradicting the function!

    I need to make the box wider and shorter, the arrow touch the ? mark and towards the right or left depending on the location of the ? mark.. 

    please advise,

    Please see the cloned form of yours with a few changes.


    Following are the screenshots of different hovered descriptions


    Following is the part of injected CSS that is used 

    - to align the description to the right of Question mark

    .form-description {

    right: -157px !important;

    top: 1px !important;


    - to change the width of description as required 

    #id_138 > div.form-description {

    width: 200px !important;

    max-width: 200px !important;

    right: -207px !important;


    You may clone the form to your account and make necessary changes as you need. Please let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you!!
