    Text Area - Rich Text; Width is squished on mobile

    Asked by shoptologymark on March 18, 2015 at 06:00 PM

    When using a "Text Area" in its rich text mode -- The form is squished on mobile. 

    Any ideas to fix this?

    I don't use a rich text until the second page of my form if you'd like to look at it on your mobile device:

    I was able to reproduced the issue when I checked your jotform http://www.jotform.us/form/43156967773166  on mobile browser.






    the quick fix I found so far is by setting the TextArea field mode to use Plain Text only.



    Let me check further if there is a CSS code that can be used to override the behavior of the Rich-Text TextArea field when used on mobile browser.

    I will update here as soon as possible.

    Please try to inject the following CSS code to your form: 

    #cid_35 > *, #cid_17 > *, #cid_38 > *, #cid_67 > *, #cid_45 > *, #cid_68 > *, #cid_76 > * {   width : 100% !important;

    Based on my tests, this should fix the issue.

    Let us know if this works or not.
    Thank you.

    Can you try to see if this also happens with this form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50774331300949? it's a cloned version of your form which I have modified a bit and tested on my phone.

    I was able to enter data into it without a problem.

    If it works on your side too, feel free to clone it to your account to check it further.
