Gravity Perks – Expand Text Areas

in on June 20, 2020


What does it do?
The Expand Editor Textareas perk makes working with textareas in the Gravity Forms Form Editor much easier by launching an expanded textarea in a modal window. The expanded textarea is much larger, increasing the readability and ease-of-use when working with larger amounts of content.

How does it work?
By default, this perk adds an “Expand Textarea” button to a specific set of field setting textareas that would most benefit from having the expanded textarea (specifially the “HTML Content”, the Calculation “Formula”, and the Post Body “Content Template” textareas). Clicking the “Expand Textarea” button launches the Expand Textareas modal for easy editing.

How do I enable this functionality?
Enabling the default functionality is very easy. Simply install and activate the Expand Textareas perk and “Expand Textarea” button will appear directly below the default textareas. Clicking this button will launch the textarea in a modal window. Add or modify the textarea content and click the “Insert” button to preserve your changes to the textarea.
