Hi @Eddie Jaeger,

My name is Rafael Franco and I'm the Tech Lead of the Product Team here at Adaptavist. First of all, thanks for using Forms for Confluence. I understand that one would expect that for whatever value one would set in the width, the Textarea would accept that. Unfortunately, Atlassian sets textareas to have a max-width of 250px.

A way to make this work, is overriding the css and make this max-width a different value, so this

Change it to a value different than 250px and it will work as intended.

Hope it helped. If it did, it would be great if you could leave us a review in the marketplace, it helps a lot further developing the product.



Hi Rafael,

tnx for the hint - now it works fine.
