    Can a text box be multi-line?

    Asked by jtamboer on March 10, 2016 at 10:21 AM

    I would prefer to make a text box that is more than 1 line deep.  Jotform easily allows characters that go beyond the width of the box, but it would be helpful for the user to read the entire text in one paragraph.  Can this be done?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to have multi-lines using a textbox. Instead, you may use Text Area field so that you may set number lines that you want to have on the form.
