    If you want it to go from this:

    To this:

    Simply inject the following CSS custom code: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    #input_15_0{

        width: 20px !important;

        height: 20px !important;

    }

    Let us know if you need more help.

    The check box itself looks like the only thing that got larger.  I'm looking to let the text go more edge to edge rather than be constrained.  So, for it to maybe just be like 3 lines of text that stretch further left to right, rather than the 17 it's currently taking up.

    Add the following CSS to the form and change the width value as you see fit:

    .form-checkbox-item {

        max-width: 600px!important;

    }

    [data-type="control_checkbox"] .form-input{

        max-width: 600px!important;

    }
