    I'm not sure I understand how would you like to adjust your fields. But you can use this CSS that should follow the width of the form:

    for example:


    #input_3{

    width:50%!important;

    }

    Where input_3 is the ID of the text-field.

    If you had something else in mind please let us know.

    Thank you!
