    Textbox sizing

    Asked by teamcfw on June 17, 2015 at 09:51 AM

    I just need to get this cleared up, because I don't know CSS, nor do I plan to learn it.  If I want to change the width of the textbox, I have to do it in CSS?  This to me sounds insane, since it is such a fundamental edit that making only available in CSS seems crazy.  Please set me straight.  Thank you.

    You do not need to learn CSS in order to change the height or width of your textboxes. You can do so in two of the following ways.

    1. In the Designer:

    You click on an input element, such as a textbox, and change the sizes with the tools on the right.

    2. In the Form Builder:

    You click on an input field of interest, and change one of its Properties at the top. Width for Text Box fields, Columns for the Text Area fields.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance or clarifications, we will be happy to help.
