    Something changed recently - size of certain controls are fixed and can't change

    Asked by ilgideon on July 30, 2016 at 04:32 PM


    What has happened to the size of textboxes, dropdown lists, etc. ?  They all seem to be the same size and I can't change them.  I believe something change on your end (correct if I'm wrong) that the Size and Max Size of these type of controls don't seem to change the width of the control.  It used to work like that a month or two ago.

    Please let me know if you trying to fix this issue OR you see a problem with my forms.

    Hello Mike,

    I'm suspecting that you were editing your form in the form designer and this caused the widths of certain text fields to adjust. Please take note that CSS overrules the size settings of text boxes. So you will have to edit again these via the form designer. 

    It would be great if you can share with us the form and the specific fields you wish to adjust so for us to check what the exact settings should be.

    Will be looking forward to your response.
