    What is the difference between a "Text box" and a "Text area"?

    I want to give the user a chance to enter a Comment of any length after each question.  Ideally it would not take up much room on the survey screen- what should I use?

    Also, where should I have gone to find the answer to this on my own?

    The difference between the two is pretty much the size of them. If you are planning on using it for a comment section the Textarea would probably be more idea since it is resizable and allows an entry limit which is also a little bit bigger for that purpose.

    Additionally, more information can be found in our Overview of Field Types which is a User Guide.
