Now that Google supports a total of 93 currencies, the pulldown menu of the currencies might be too long to fit your module width.

So how do you change the width of the pulldown menu so that it can fit nicely within your module position?

The width of the pulldown currency menu

The width of the pulldown menu is determined by the length of the options.

The length of each option is indicated in the square brackets.
