    How do I increase the text box in the Narrative Fields widget?

    Asked by clarkschool on January 25, 2016 at 04:56 PM

    Hi there,

    How do I increase the text box to be able to show all the text in the box? As you can see in the screenshot, there should be more text where the arrows are, but I've exhausted everything I know to do (custom CSS and editing properties) and can't fix it.

    I am in no way a coder, so it is possible that my CSS was total crap (and I deleted it and can't find it now, so I can't even tell you what it was).

    You can add this css in the Narrative Field widget to display the rest of the text.

    <p style=" height:250px;">

    Apply the same css to the other widget.
