Matrix questions

    Asked on October 23, 2015 at 11:27 AM

    Hello, I have two questions.

    1) I created this form:  The font size on the matrix questions is very small.  Is there a way to make that bigger without changing the font size of the rest of the form?  I tried to do this in both Properties and in Designer mode but haven't been able to figure it out.  

    2) Also, you'll notice in one of the questions "How well did you develop the following skills during your postdoctoral experience at CHLA?"  We ask participants to rank an "other" skill and specify what that skill is in a different text box field.  Is there a way to combine the two fields, so as to include an "other" write in option within the matrix?  

    Thanks very much.

    I see you have two different matrix-related questions so lets start with the first one here being that you want to make the matrix question here much larger without messing up the rest of your form.

    In order to make the font bigger for the headers you would have to adjust it with injected css. You can then offset it from going outside of the form area on the right by pushing the margin to the left with the second line of code. However, it's likely going to be a bit difficult to do this because of the existing size of your form so you would need to make your form a bit wider and bigger possibly to then allow more room to make your matrix larger otherwise it might not look right.


    Example Css Codes:

    .form-matrix-column-headers, .form-matrix-row-headers {

        font-size : 13px;


    .form-line.form-line-column.form-col-6 {

        margin-left : -35px;
