Summary13455: Text input size? -> misleading

Text input size is quite misleading imo because a beginner would associate this function to the size of the input text

If you change the value from the respective box, the area/size of the box where you introduce the input changes.

Maybe the name could be changed into:

  • Text area size or,
  • Text input box size
TagsNo tags attached.

In 2.6lts (and 1.93 or 1.80 maybe before) : this settings set the attribute size of text input and col of textarea. See

But Louis in 2.5X didn't understand this and set it to the input css width.
