    I believe you are referring to this field?

    To adjust the text boxes in this field you can inject this CSS Code below.

    width: 560px;

    I checked the settings for this field but I am not seeing any option for you to limit the amount of characters entered. Sorry to say but you are not able to do this in CSS either. I hope this is the field you are referring to, please let me know if otherwise.
