    Is there a way to indicate in the word count that appears in Text Boxes when you activate a word limit that tell the user whether or not the limit is measured by words or characters.

    Thank you.

    There is an option to limit the text entry and to show how many words/letters you can enter.

    And you can do that with Long text entry:

    And limit:

    It will show like this:

    Now, it will not show the word "words" or "letters".

    But, as a workaround, we could do that with Text field:

    And position it properly with CSS:

    The CSS would depend on your form so that's why I didn't provide it here.

    But you can check my test form: https://form.jotform.com/82125371074956

    Let us know if that is what you had in mind.

    Thank you!
