    How do I change the width of the Full Name field?

    Asked by duceduce122 on December 27, 2011 at 03:08 PM

    I want to change the width of the name fields, specifically the first name field. The default width is just a bit too small and I want it wider, how do I do this?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can either use the simple Text Box with the Size option, or Inject Custom CSS Codes to adjust needed fields.

    In my example I have injected the following code:

    #first_1, #last_1 {width: 150px;}

    You may also find some useful information in our User Guide and Forum:

    "#first_2, #last_2 {width: 150px;}"

    to change the fields size of the "full name" field! This work fine!

    Thanks for your input, nordlicht.

    For the benefit of others who may be having difficulty with this, the procedure for finding the tag for a specific field has been simplified. Just right-click the field and when the menu pops up, click Show Properties and you'll see the tag (or as is the case of compound fields like "Full Name" and "Address", tags)
