Thank you for your kind words.

In that case, can you please update BreezingForms to the latest version and see whether that fixes the issue.

Regards,

Hello Mihaela, I have updated to the latest version and somehow that changed the select list window, but there are still some words that don't fit inside the window nor there is a way to make word wrapping inside that window.

Thank you in advance.

Hello again,

I see that some titles are really lengthy. What I can suggest is to add to that select list a funtionality to scroll horizontally to see the whole text.

To achieve so do as follows.
Go to your form > Advanced tab > More options > Form pieces > Before Form > Type > Custom and paste this code:
echo '
<style>
#ff_elem386 {
    overflow-x: scroll !important;
}
</style>
';
Let me know whether after you add the code it select list looks like you wanted.

Regards,

Mihaela

Hello Mihaela, sorry but there is no horizontal scroll after adding your code to the proper place you pointed at me.

But I was wondering, isn't there a solution like word wrapping or a simple </br> that would force changing lines just for this sentence?

Thank you anyway.

Hello,

I took a look at your form to try to figure out why the horizontal scroll isn't applied, but I saw that it is.
Here is a screenshot of the select list in your form


The user has an option to scroll horizontally to see the whole option text.

You wrote, "But I was wondering, isn't there a solution like a word wrapping or a simple </br> that would force changing lines just for this sentence?". If you were asking if it is possible to break one option in more lines, that can not easily be done because <br> tag can't be added into an option's text. You take a look at this link stackoverflow.com/questions/2864238/line...n-html-select-option regarding the same question.

Regards,

Mihaela
