PowerApps form increase width of field

I feel like this is a really dumb question but I can't easily figure it out.  I've created a form that ties to a SharePoint list.  There are 2 versions of the form - new and edit.  When someone goes into the edit field I'd like them to be able to see the entire response in some of the fields that are a little longer.  Right now, it's just showing a single line of text and you have to mouse through it to see the rest of the response. I tried the simple solution of increasing the size of the field in PowerApps but that doesn't work.  Is there a way to accomplish this?

Are you stating that this is a multi-line (or should be) set of information?  If so, you can go to your Fields list for the Form and to that DataCard and change its type to a multi-line field.  

 

If that you just want to change the Width of the field, then yes, you can change the width of the DataCard container, and then change the width of the Text control in the datacard.

 

I hope that is helpful for you.

Thank you Randy - I did figure this out and didn't get back out in time to state that.  Thanks for your help.
