I want to create an alternate shape for the default text field that I added to my content type. I understand how to create an alternate shape on the display/front end side. But is there a way I can do this on the admin side? I want to change the text field to a multi-line text area field. Without having to build a custom field/module.

 

Can this be done?

 

Thanks

Maybe, if you create the alternate from placement for example. The documentation has an example of that, that I think should work for admin shapes as well with the right match. The question is then is a template in your theme would be found. You might have to bump up the priority of your theme from code in that particular case if it isn't.
