I've set a schema field to height 2 and see the following for the input area in Chrome and IE.


I'm expecting to have text area that's 2 lines high based on the default text size. I removed the source view option, thinking the tab might affect the size, but it still appears to be about 5 lines in height instead of 2.

It seems to match 2 lines if the text is set to a large font or to a heading. I'd like to minimize the size these fields take in the content entry form as well as hint that authors should enter a smaller amount of text.

How do I make this match the expected 2 lines?

I also see 5 lines, and the smallest I can re-size the field to is 3 lines. I think you will need to file an enhancement request with SDL Customer Support to get the functionality you desire.

It looks like it. I'll accept we can't change this in the UI and follow up with SDL. – Alvin Reyes May 9 '12 at 15:28
just out of interest... was this ever followed up with SDL? It's quite an interesting request and I can see the editorial reasoning... – user18879 Oct 4 '12 at 14:39
