Hi,
I have a suggestion, if the menu item of one drop down menu can be linked with another, for example:
In the Country Field a user selects USA, in next Field on form that says States, the user should only see the states in US.
Country
    USA, UK, UAE
USA selected
State:
    New York, California, Mississippi
should be shown and if user selects UK, these states should now show the Counties/ Cities in UK.
This will give better options for building the forms and users who are sending data will also feel good while filling in the forms.

Another problem I saw was the size of a field in form, I think I must be doing some thing wrong, as the field size does not change and if a field is required for long data, say some thing like 500 characters, it does not convert to a text box but remains a straight strip that goes out of the site borders and does not leave a good impact. If a helping hand can be extended for fixing this problem
Thanks

Thank you for the suggestion. We will take it into consideration for when we do our next major upgrade. As for your second problem, this is an easy fix. When configuring the form choose text box - multiline as the field type. From you description it sound like you have choosen the normal text box field type.

Thank you,
