Possible to make edit screen wider so name of text field is on one line?

I have a name for a text field that is shown on two lines in the edit screen. Is it possible to make the edit screen wider?

We put the following text into the Announcement Banner textbox to get the entire field's name on one line.

AJS.$(document).ready(function() 
{
	AJS.$('.name').css({"white-space":"normal"});
	AJS.$('.name').css({"width":"auto"});
});

Thanks! But when I add this to the Banner I only see the text in the Banner. Do you know if there something I need to do to make this work?

Add within the script tag

<script>
...
</script>

Hi,

You need to put <script>-tags around the code snippet since the announcement bannner is using html.

Look at: https://gist.github.com/aheusingfeld/1723281 as an example

Beware: If you miss a tag you may lock up your entire instance! This method is not recommended in my opinion and should only be used for testing purposes.

if you get this problem!

<script>
AJS.$(document).ready(function()
{
    AJS.$('.name').css({"white-space":"normal"});
    AJS.$('.name').css({"width":"auto"});
});
</script>
Adding the code within the script tags also doesn't work.  I have tried adding this script in the announcement banner as well as the Description . Please help with the right code and approach
