Maxdiff/Best-worst scaling design

Hello,

I am trying to design a best-worst survey using this workaround:

https://manual.limesurvey.org/Workarounds:_Question_design,_layout_and_templating#Version_2.5

So far everything is looking good (screenshot shows my current situation) but I am trying to change the column sizes to make the answer option column (middle) bigger.

I have tried following/adapting advice from this forum ( https://www.limesurvey.org/forum/design-issues/86298-column-width-in-an-array ) but so far have had no luck.

Does anyone know a way I can do this?

Thanks!

Can you attach a survey export file (.lss) containing only that question and your inserted code?

Attached- this is my first experience with JavaScript so I'm thinking the way I'm attempting to do this is completely wrong!

You can adjust the column widths with pure CSS instead of JavaScript.

Something like this in the question source:

<style type="text/css">
 
	@media only screen and (min-width: 768px) {
 
		#question{QID} col {
			width: auto !important;
		}
 
		#question{QID} table.ls-answers {
			table-layout: auto;
		}
 
		#question{QID} .answer_cell_SQ001,
		#question{QID} .answer_cell_SQ002 {
			width: 20%;
		}
 
		#question{QID} .ls-answers tbody .answertext {
			text-align: center;
		}
	}
</style>
