    Thank you for contacting us. 

    Option "Size" is width (size) of the field and option "Max Size" is maximum allowed number of characters that can be entered inside of the field. 

    I have made demo form with two text box field. Size of first field is 10 and size of second field is 30. You can see that second field is wider.

    And both fields have Max size set to 5 characters. 

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/60195609535965

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