    How to have a wider input fields on the form

    Asked by Massier on May 20, 2016 at 09:41 AM

    I really cant make text areas, email fields, name fields, wider. even if I change "rows" nothing happens. 
    Therefore I did not integrate them. but would be nice to know - maybe I do soemthing wrong.

    You should be able to widen the input of the text area field is you increase the number of "columns".

    Here's an example:


    You can also just set their widths using the Form Designer Tool. Here's a guide that you can refer to: https://www.jotform.com/help/300-Form-Designer-Tutorial-Let-s-create-fantastic-forms-. Below is a screencast how I widen the full name and the email field.


    If you are familiar with CSS, then you can also inject your own custom CSS code widen the fields width. Here's a guide that might help: https://www.jotform.com/help/75-Customize-your-Form-using-Custom-CSS-Codes
