Need to add a long text question field quickly? With the power of slash commands, we can do it in seconds!

Here's how...

  1. Click on the line in your form editor where you'd like to add the new question field.
  2. Type this slash command: /long
  3. Select Text (Long) from the drop-down menu that appears or press Enter.
  4. The new question field will come pre-filled with example data. You can change this by clicking on each element (e.g. question title, hint).

With that, you're all set! Pretty easy, right?

Helpful Tip

You can change the height of the field by adding or removing lines in the question configuration. This is listed under How many lines of text should the question be? and is set to 5 by default.
