    Hello ardissa,

    You can do this by selecting the text field while editing the form.  You will see three tabs: Style of the form, Installation and Embed and Properties.

    Choose the Properties tab.  You should then see a Maximum Size option at the top menu bar.  You can define the maximum number of characters allowed with this option.

    Hope that helps!  Enjoy the weekend!
