    There is not much that can be done in regards to this since this is made by browser itself in order to show all values as they are.

    I would suggest either shortening the values or replacing the dropdown with the radio buttons if you want it to not get bigger than the layout.

    The only solution with CSS would be to hide the text that would widen the dropdown list

    You can see this CSS in effect here:


    This is the CSS:

    select#input_97, select#input_97 > option {
       text-overflow: ellipsis;
       max-width: 722px;
       overflow: hidden;

    You can inject the CSS following instructions in this guide: Inject Custom CSS Codes or you can clone the jotform above following this guide instead: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL
