    I am assuming that you would like to modify the size of the text in your form. If you enter the DESIGNER

    In the designer, you will notice the option FONT OPTIONS. Here you can change the font type and size of your text.




    If you are looking to modify a particular text, please let us know the form and text you like to modify.

    If I understood you correctly you want to increase width of your text box fields. You can change width of text box fields and text area fields inside of Form Designer. Open you Form Designer and click on any of your text box fields. Then inside of Text Box Styles tab change the value of TEXTBOX & TEXTAREA WIDTH. On my cloned form I have set width to 300.

    Here is my cloned form: https://form.jotform.com/60074776754969 

    Feel free to clone it

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

    Size of all text box fields can be changed. 

    You can also change size of text box field inside of Form Builder. Simply select text box field that you to change and click on Size option. By change value inside of Size option you can change size of field.

    Same can be done for text area fields. 

    If you are unable to change size of text box field please provide us ID of form you are working on and tell us size of which field you want to change.

    Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

    I have tried to make them bigger and it is not working. The name of my form is Mission Application - Saved Form.  I would like all the text to be wider.

    Try adding this code to your form:


    .form-textarea {
        min-width : 500px !important;

    That will increase the minimum width of all your text areas.  Adjust the value to your liking. 

    Here is what the form would look like with the code added:
