yes I know, but how I should edit the file? I don't know what I have to do. The provided information is only for text fields and they looks different than number fields so I don't know how to edit them to change the width of the field.

Just remove the class atribute and and add size="10", it should look like this:

<input id="$" name="$" type="text" value="$textutils.htmlEncode($!value)" size="10"/>

Just change the number 10 with the number of caracters you want to show up.
