    Please check my test form https://form.jotform.com/53136990130956?

    Will this do to what you need.

     

    I created it by adding the TextArea field after the "njn" field in the form.

    And then I added the following CSS codes

     

    #id_223 {

        float : left;

        position : absolute;

        margin-left : 250px;

    }

    #input_223 {

        height: 185px;

    }

     

    You can apply the same modification on your jotform https://form.jotform.com/53135107340140

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    I realise you want the TextArea to cover the entire block.

    Modify the CSS code to this

     

    #id_223 {

        float : left;

        position : absolute;

        margin-left : 250px;

        width:70% !important;

    }

    I have added the code     width:70% !important;

     

    Let us know how it goes.
