    Expandable text area

    Asked by rkelley on July 01, 2016 at 11:16 AM

    On our wedding application we have a text box for each of their testimonies. Everyone fills in a different amount of information. I need a box that adjusts with the amount of info they put in. So if I print the form, not the response that get's emailed but the form so I get all of the formatting the way I want, all of that text box needs to print for both people. I thought I did it right by saying no maximum but it doesn't print in this way. Is there a way to make this happen?

    Please check the Textarea Autosize widget. This will allow the textarea to adjust dynamically while you're typing.


    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    Sorry. Is there a way to edit what I have so that previous answers are still in that area? Otherwise, if I put a widget there and delete the old field I lose all the old data.
    Thanks so much,

    Add the widget, but don't delete the existing field, simply click on it's gear icon and hide:
