    I was able to see this problem on the form that uses the TextArea field properties Max Entry Limit

    when using Minimum Entry Limit option, the context for the Max Entry Limit is shown as -1. So it can be confusing for the end user,


    I will elevate the issue to our higher team support so that it can be corrected.

    We will let you know here once the bug is fixed.
