How to change Multi Select Custom field length using script in JIRA?

I have long option values (longer then 40 characters) and the current setting only allow about 40 characters to be display and the rest is not viewable.

How can I change that?

I found way to change the size, but not the length:

You can try the same javascript as the length, but use "width=" instead. You may want to experiment with measurements (e.g. width=50% or width=400px. Remember to check it on small and large screens)

I could be wrong, but I believe you have to go to the velocity files and edit it based on the view you are on.

Thanks Eva, I kind of know I can "mess" with the velocity file, but I am not knowledgable to do that.

Hi Nic, I did tried various measurements like "width", "length", ... but no luck, if you can finf that magic attribute for me that will be great!

Thanks all for your answer!
