    Insert a Free Text (HTML) field from the Power Tools menu into the form

    and enter the text you wish to appear. To limit the height of the free text element, inject the following CSS rule, substituting the ID of your free text field for #id_1 and changing 200 to the height (in pixels) you want:

    #id_1 {
    overflow:auto;
    height:200px;
    }

    See this free text field example. (If you clone the form, you will see that the CSS above has been injected)

    Your browser's developer tools will help you to quickly determine the ID of your free text field but it can also be found by just searching the source of the form.
