How can I change the spacing on form elements and boxes?

I am using statements selected in a previous question within a form. When I try to resize the boxes manually, they revert on preview to single lines (seen below). I am also looking for a way to change the spacing of the statements themselves -- character length per line, spaces between statements -- so that they are easily to read.

    I'm not sure how to change the spacing for labels, but to permanently change the size of boxes:

    1. Select "Click here to edit form fields"
    2. In the drop down menu change from Short to Long or Essay

    It will still look weird in the Survey Editor but when you preview your question it should look better.

    I spent a bit of time looking, and found another post that solved the label formatting issue! Here's a link to the post: https://www.qualtrics.com/community/discussion/2123/fitting-labels-into-one-line-in-text-entry-form-question

    If you add a no break tag to the labels' html coding, it will keep the label all on one line:

    Thanks for your note! I had completely missed that option ... way down below the long series of potential selections.

    Hi Karen - I'm just curious if you ever found a solution to the issue with the label formatting? I'm experiencing the same problem.
