    Can I word wrap my text in my matrix text box? See Below

    Asked by czawodzi on July 13, 2015 at 01:27 PM

    .form-textbox {




    #input_134_0_1 {

        width : 500px;

        height : 100px;

        text-align : center;

        word-break : normal;

        word-wrap : break-word;



        This is what I have in my CSS, my words still keep going to the right and not completely viewable in the text box, unless you arrow over to the right.  I am using the Condition portion of jotform to put my words in the matrix textboxes.  Can I use the CSS editor to type my words in for the matrix texboxes?  Thanks!

    Since the input is a Text Box, it will act as a single line.  Though the space for entry has been made larger, it is still a single line as far as the input ability is concerned.  Adding CSS will not adjust this property.

    You could setup Text Area fields in a similar manner to your Matrix Text boxes.  Then set those to be filled by your conditions.  This would allow for multiple lines of text.  However, the Text Boxes for the Matrix field are limited to a single line.
