    How do I make some text fields bigger or smaller than others?

    Asked by Wandili on May 14, 2015 at 10:41 PM

    I'm using a lot of 'free text' fields for a survey... I want the text boxes to appear bigger, but when I change the size in the designer view all of the text boxes throughout the form change too. I don't want that - just some to be bigger.

    I'm ok with how to resize, but not the issue of all of them sizing up the same.

    Hi Wandili, 

    Thanks for contacting us.


    If you want to adjust height of a specific Text Box of your form, you need to add a CSS code for the specific Text Box (determined by id).


    #input_4 {

        height: 200px;



    To adjust height of a specific Text Box, please see instructions below:



    Please ensure that you added the CSS height tag to the correct id #input_XX not in .form-textbox CSS class so the adjustment will only be implemented to the specific Text Box.


    I recommend you use the Text Area field instead of Text Box if you need multiple lines of inputs in your field.  To add a Text Area to your form, please follow instructions below.



    If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us again.
