    Technical Help: I can't shrink a free text box when designing a form

    Asked by ConciliumGroup on January 10, 2012 at 04:10 AM

    When I add a free text box to my form and try to SHRINK it, it expands to beyond the width of my form and the only way to reduce it is to EXPAND it again. Please see screenshot attached. Is this a technical fault or am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks for reporting. This problem was already reported before but we don't have any news about it. For now, as a working solution, please cut your sentence or add <br /> tag to the part of the sentence where it overflows the form. Or, you can have a short sentence in every line to avoid that problem when shrinking the field.

    I hope you're satisfied to this. If ever we received an updates on this problem, we'll surely inform you. Please let us know if you have further questions. Thank you for using JotForm!
