    You can try increasing width as follows;

     Go to Setup & Share > Preferences > Form Style > Inject Custom CSS

    .form-checkbox-item {
        width: 380px !important;

    Thank you for your speedy response – I’ll have to start reading up about CSS.

    Hi Dave

    There are several resources on CSS online. However, in my opinion, a good place to start learning the basics is MaxDesign. Be sure to view the three presentations on that page and also have a look at the Selectutorial tutorial.

    I forgot to mention that using Firebug will simplify the task of determining what selectors should be used to style various elements in your forms.
