How can I make some textbox to cover multiple rows?

Below are just a random example from internet. But I want to create something similar. I want to have one big textbox at one column and multiple rows of small textboxs in another column. However, I cannot find the way to do it in powerApp.

Hi @Parwitch ,

The only way (which creates a heap of unnecessary complication) is to not use a Form as every item in each row of cards assumes the height of the tallest card.

 

Please click Accept as solution if my post helped you solve your issue. This will help others find it more readily. It also closes the item. If the content was useful in other ways, please consider giving it Thumbs Up.

Thank you for your concern. Your answer did help me and put an end to my search. But it pains me to accept this as a solution, literally.  (a workaround, yes)

 

Once I found out that this is a system limitation, I have no choice but to accept it as it is. Still, it disappoints me that the form in Microsoft PowerApp cannot handle such a simple and common configuration.

Hi @Parwitch ,

The idea of a closed solved post on the forum (I personally do not need the numbers) is to give information to future users as to how (or importantly) whether they can do something. The fact there is no solution is a solution in itself (it stops people trying further).
