Hello, I've created a Sharepoint LIst to track the workflow of my orders. From the Microsoft documentation for Lists, I've created sections to categorize each field/data. What I realised is, even if there's only one textbox in one section, the textbox is extremely tiny.SPLIst

Is there any way to make the textbox bigger? Maybe like this:

    Based on the screenshot you provided, you use JSON formatting to set sections in the list form. In the list form, JSON formatting only could configure list form body with one or more sections. It cannot adjust the size of a multi-line text column.

    You could submit the suggestion in the feedback portal to improve JSON formatting.

    Per my researching, as a workaround, changing the height of the field through Power Apps is available.

    1.Go to the list page and click Integrate -> Power Apps -> Customize forms.

    2.On the Power Apps page, select the multi-line text box and drag the mouse to change the height of the field and set Mode is Multiline.

    3.Save and publish the custom form.

    4.Result.

    By the way, need to pay attention, publishing a custom Power Apps form will break existing JSON formatting. You could consider whether to use Power Apps based on the results you want.
