    For text boxes, you need to select it and click on the Max Size button to enter the maximum number of characters that should be accepted.

    For text areas, you need to use the Entry Limit option in which you can set the limit in words or characters.

    I've created a demo form here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50377511714957 so you can test how the limit works. Feel free to clone this form into your account.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.
    Best Regards.
