Inserting large amount of text in to check box or drop down menu.

(b)  A sign referred to in (a) must be in capital letters not less than 20mm high in a color contrasting with the background and state - 


The second issue is that when i insert the above text to the field I can only see part of the text (it is cut off on the right side).

Can any one help me please?
