Is it possible to increase the input area size for template variables?

So I'm creating some templates and have been using the template variables as forms fields basically to walk users through their documents. However, I'd like to also be able to use area variables.


Is there a way to increase the size of the input field of these template variables?

Disregard. I've just figured it out. This is what I was referring to. Thank you!
