    Is there a way to require a certain number of characters (ex. 200) in a long text field?

    Cheers,

    Yes, that is possible through properties of the Long Text Entry:

    You can limit by a number of characters or by a number of words.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!

    Thanks a lot!
    Is there a reason the "sublabel" gets really small when you require a
    certain number of words?

    No, setting entry limits should not cause the sublabel to be small. I did check your form and it seems to display the sublabel correctly. Please check the screenshot below:
