    Textarea box display resize

    Asked by andypenn on October 11, 2015 at 10:39 AM

    This morning I had a text box in rich text mode , and was able to resize it, since then I have used form collapse and now find I can no longer resize the text box.

    Is there a reason I cannot resize the field???

    How can I resize the text box in rich text mode.

    I presume you are referring to the textarea field?

    I made a test form and I see that in plain text mode it can be resized by dragging the expand image

    However in the rich editor mode I see it's a fixed size and it can be resized by adjusting the "Columns" values.


    Here's a sample form that i made: https://form.jotform.com/52840756060959? 

    Let us know if that option works for you.
