    Hello Cathy,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support. Do you mean to limit the number of characters allowed on the Short Text Field? If so, you can easily do that through the element's properties. Let me show you how:

    • In your Form Builder, select the Short Text field, click on the Gear icon to open its Properties, choose the Options panel, then toggle On the Character Limit option.
    • Customize the minimum and maximum characters allowed on the field.


    • Also, you could mask the field's content by toggling On the Input Mask option. This way You can specify what characters are to be inserted in that field.


    You can learn more about the Input Mask feature by clicking on this link.

    If these aren't exactly what you're looking for, can you explain a bit more about what you want to do?

    Keep us updated and let us know if you need any more help.
