Vertical size of text area on TCs when editing text


Thought I’d share this: When I edit TCs, I waste so much time resizing the textareas of some of my fields.

The default size of 8 rows. It’s small to me that I have to enlarge it manually each time I add or edit a TC.

This script enlarges the vertical size of textarea (fields) of steps, expected and notes.

     function() {

I’ve noticed however that split steps don’t have a set name but rather an unique UUID each time they are generated.

Example: <textarea id="stepContent-01000bb6b-39d7-4be5-a1ff-f2bedb3657fe">

How do you enlarge the size of those. Using an asterisk obviously won’t work :wink:



Hi Adron,

Thanks for your posting. You can actually change the default height/rows for the text and steps fields in the custom field options:

Just edit the project options of the field and you would see a Rows option.



Uh oops… lol that was pretty silly of me.

Thanks for the feedback, Gurock! :slight_smile:


No problem, happy to help :slight_smile:
