Hello All,

How to increase the size of the multiline text custom field box? I want to make it as big as two boxes put together.

You can't do it from the UI. You would need to modify the source code. I don't recommend that. 

Thanks for the reply Joe

Hi mani@123 

Do you mean the visual height or number of characters the field can take?

You can try inserting some custom CSS in the banner to increase the height of that field to make it visually bigger.

Hi Ravi,

Thanks for the response.

I want to increase the visual height of the box. Could you please help me to find CSS script to put in the banner. I searched online could not find any.

Thanks in advance,

Ok try this.

 

<style type="text/css">
textarea#customfield_12702 {
height: 200px;
}
</style>

Find the custom field id of your field and replace in the code above.

Hi Ravi,

It is not working, replaced custom field ID.

Thanks,

Mani

Check the ID or Class of your field using Inspect option in your browser and use that in the code.
