    How do I get the text to stay within the boundaries of the form?

    Asked by DocRobin on November 10, 2014 at 05:49 PM

    Some of the text lines on my form are running over to the right. I created the form with a narrow width so it will fit on a blog page, and for the most part it works. But some of the questions on the form have multi-choice answers that are long sentences or lists. These sentences are running off the edge of the form to the right. They are not resizing to fit. I tried hitting "return" at various points in the sentences so that they would have shorter lines of text, but then each section became it's own answer choice. There is a slider bar at the bottom of the form, so readers can read the sentences that go off to the right, but that is very inconvenient. How do I fix this form so that all of the text is within the boundaries?

    Hi again,

    I've created a cloned version of your form to test with, you can find it here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43137311217949

    I've removed all the injected CSS and started over and I was able to fix the width issue in my form. 

    Please take a look at it and if it works for you feel free to clone it and test it in your website.

    Let us know how it goes.
