    JotForm is easy to use. We actually exist so that you wont spend too much time on building web forms. 

    Unfortunately, we may need more information to help you further.

    If you can provide a screenshot of what you are trying to accomplish or maybe an existing page we may mimic. A simple draft in MS paint should be helpful in describing what your goal is if it's hard to do on words.

    Thank you for trying JotForm!

    I checked your form and it seems you need to add some long text in your form. To do so please check the screenshot below.

    Please make sure in Step 4 that you save your inputs. Now here is how the above form looks like: https://www.jotform.com/form/13262524456

    If you are new to building forms, I strongly suggest that you browse through this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/46-Screenshot-List-of-All-Form-Fields so you will have some overview of what form elements you may use with the form that is being built.
