How to increase the size of the text box area

Added by RedChris B. 11 months ago

In connection with adjusting Redmine to our needs I added custom fields (Long text format). However the default area size of this type of field is too small for us.

Therefore I do need to know how to increase the size of the text box area visible in the Issue Tab. I tried to find the default size parameters in the BITNAMI_REDMINE database and in various configuration files but without success.

My environment is:
- Redmine 3.3.1
- Ruby 2.1.10-p492
- Rails 4.2.7.1
- DB adapter Mysql2
- Subversion 1.9.4
- Git 2.7.4
- OS Debian 8

So, I kindly ask you for help.

Maybe your problem will be resolved with #21705, currently planned in version 3.4.0
