    Hi, fallonharris,

    I hope I was able to get your concern correctly because I'm only basing it on the title of your post.

    To make the text box on your wide, let's assume first that you already have your form and you are on your form's edit mode.

    Follow the arrows on the image below to get the id of your text box, because we will need that id when we Inject CSS codes on your form.

    Once you have the id of the text field you would like to widen, close the "Properties" window and click Preferences from the toolbar (make sure you are on "Setup & Embed" tab). Then, the Preferences window will open, go to "Form Styles" tab and locate the "Inject CSS Code" field where you may place your CSS codes. 

    I have placed #input_3{ width: 500px; } in the "Inject CSS Code" field to make the width of the text box wider. 


    By the way, you may set the width: 500px; to your own preference, of course.

    Click the "Close Settings" button once you're done and save your form.

    Preview your form to see changes on the text box width.


    I hope I was able to help you. If you need further assistance, please feel free to let us know and we will be glad to help you.
