    The form used to allow at least 200 words submission. Now it is only 20 words

    Asked by mayazhangschool on January 20, 2015 at 09:15 AM

    Hello Jotform Team,


    Thank you for designing this amazing website. I created this from two months ago. Up to last week, my attendees were able to type in more than about 200 words in "paper abstract, presenter's bio and notes to the conference" however, this week, we got two emails saying that they are only able to type 20 words in these three places. Would you please help me figure out the reasons?


    Best regards,
