Free text in survey form or editable text box for long text strings

Hi,

I need to collect a long paragraph text entry from participants but whether I use the editable text box or the free text survey form, the text continues in a straight line whereas I would like it to remain inside the box and for the box to expand. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!!

Hi Wendy,

Please could you confirm whether this related to an issue gathering text online or locally?

Locally the text is set to wrap by detecting spaces - so if you continue typing a long word with no spaces there will not appear to be a wrap, but if you type words with spaces then the text should wrap on the spaces. Does that work for your experiment?

Thanks,
Becca
