    How can to make entries on the Matrix Dynamique widget not exceed the width of the form?

    Asked by kekay on July 08, 2016 at 06:21 AM

    Hi there! JotForm is great. But I'm not really a coder. I think I have the same issue. Can you please help me out? Here's a screencap of my form...

    How will I make the widget fit? When you type in a link, it extends to the right. Please help.

    To fix that, please add the custom CSS code below to the Custom CSS tab of the Matrix Dynamique widget on your form.

    td, .spantext{

    max-width:104px !important;

    width:104px !important;


    Here's is a clone version of your form where I have applied the changes: https://form.jotform.com/61893781998985

    Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you.

    Wow! That was fast. I've tried the steps you provided and they're great, It's doing what it's supposed to do.

    I do have one more question though. There's another widget in my form and it allows me to upload files from different apps. With the wide range of app choices, it also exceeds the form width. I think that's okay but what I don't like is that the Upload Files window/button doesn't go back to its original size when you X out of it. Here's a screencast of my problem.



    I'd really appreciate it if you could help me again with this one.
