Why doesn't the word limit/count or warning work when using the Rich Text Editor?Asked by Asialaw on January 22, 2014 at 04:59 AM
It doesn't count up the number of words as you enter them. If you copy and paste from MS Word it just let's you paste an unlimited number of words.
We must use the Rich Text Editor so clients can format their supplied text.
Is there a workaround using injected code please?
I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.
Upon checking you form, I was able to replicate the problem you are having. The "Entry Limit" feature of the rich text editor seems to be broken.
I am sending a bug report to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as this is fixed.

I just tested this and it's working as expected now. For both plain and rich text word and character limits are enforced.
