One more time - where are the various fieldwidths controlled in FB?

One more time - where are the various fieldwidths controlled in FB?

I posted this in a previous message that was inadvertently hijacked and the question never got answered completely and I need to move on with a solution, so one more time ...

When I look at the text field size for the Captcha code that must be entered, as well as the security question's answer text field, they both show up as "formTextfield_Large" in the CSS inspector. Where is this value set and what can I do to make it smaller? The text fields are currently showing up as 252px despite all my other text fields showing up as 240px which I set in Edit Design mode.

I also noticed that the Zip code field is smaller, but no idea where the width for it was controlled either.

I see where I can control the general text field size while using Edit Design and choosing Form Elements with Text, but evidently this setting doesn't apply to all text fields since the zip code text field is smaller than my default 240px and the Captcha code and Security answer are at 252px which is larger.

Ray Bourduin answered by saying -

There is another list in the same page of the form design where you choose the size of the field.

When you change a width it only changes that one field size, not all.

You can go through and adjust them all, or go to the form contents and change the size their so they are all the same size to begin with.

Now my question is - where is the place for controlling each field width? Maybe a snapshot of where it is or a text description for how to do it? I've been looking for this over and over and I don't see it anywhere. I just want to be able to control each field's width using FB, and not by going into the HTML and changing it there since if I use FB for anything else after that, and then save it, it'll blow all my work away.
