    I presume that this is the form where you want to change the width of the text box: http://www.jotform.me/form/61151724402444

    Do let us know if it is some other form and if you happen to have any specific width you had in mind, or if you are just looking to change the size of each or all textboxes in general and we would be happy to assist with the same.

    Ben, I am having the same issue. I have tried changing the width to double the size of the text box in CSS designer yet it remains the same. I even tried changing the percentage which only work if I reduced the percentage, not increased.

    Can you assist?

    Okay, right after I posted I found out I was trying to do things the hard way. For me, it was as simple as clicking back over to the "Design" tab instead of the "CSS" tab, clicking "TEXTBOX STYLES" and increasing the pixels inside of "TEXTBOX & TEXTBOX AREA WIDTH".

    Thanks.
