    Limit Content on Text Area

    Asked by Freupost on August 27, 2013 at 06:08 PM

    Not a good editor! I can press Enter and press and press ... and the form is endlessly long! Is there no limit? So that the user can only write in the box?

    You can limit the text the user can type in on the text area. This can either be limited by the mount of words they can type, or the mount of letters as well. 

    By default the text-are is set to No-Limit, but this can easily be changed by following steps below:

    -Click on Entry Limit on the top of your Form Editor toolbar

    - Select the type of limit you want to use. (Words or Letters)

    -Then Click OK
