    I have a word limit of 150 words on one of my form fields, and when a user tried to enter text with exactly 150 words, the form said the length was 181 words. I pasted the text in Word and it was in fact 150 words.

    Unfortunately, I wasn't able to replicate the issue when I tested your form. The counter was recording correctly and a warning was triggered as soon as the number of words exceeded 150. Just to be sure I entered 150 words, I copied the text from the field and pasted it into this tool.

    Is the form still exhibiting the problem on your end? If so, could you please copy the text entered and paste it here?

    We'll await your reply.
