How to expand Multi Select custom field to show full text options

We have a couple of multi select custom fields with a bunch of different options. As of right now it gets cut off. Is there any way to expand the multi select so that we can see the full text?

Does this cover what you are looking for? :)


I'm using the javascript in the description but the spacing on the multi select is still the same cutting off the text inside

Is there another option that we can use?

You need jquery for this task: Add the class "long-field" to your multi select component.
How long is the text you want to display?

I think on average it would be around 100 - 150 characters

Hm, add this to your component: style="width:100%"
What about the solution? Did it help?
