I assume this is due to the resizable JS that gets applied to the textarea forcing 100% width on it.

Simplest thing maybe to drop this setting?

I'm assuming you meant "textarea width has no effect"?

There is a note in the description text saying that it won't have an effect if your CSS sets a width on it. Not all sites have this CSS in place though, so I think it's important to keep it as an option.

Sorry, yes width.

It's actually set in system.css:

html.js .resizable-textarea textarea {
    display: block;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    width: 100%;

so most themes are going to find a problem with that...

The warning isn't there on 6.x-3.15 -- any chance of a backport?

Ah, the warning is actually in Form Builder, not in Webform so I didn't see it right away. Updated with the following description. "This property might not have a visual impact depending on the CSS of your site."

Committed attached patch, which also fixes #1480730: textarea height UI text needs to specify units.
